Substantial mechanical and electrical alterations and replacements were also completed along with window and roof light replacements.


External works included the replacement of the vertical and raking windows to the north elevation above the building’s joinery workshop, new roof coverings and the replacement of the AHU and ventilation system servicing the workshop
