Description

Since 1692 the Royal Hospital at Chelsea has provided a magnificent home for thousands of army pensioners. Sir Christopher Wren’s adaptable design has allowed the berths to expand over the years; however a more radical intervention was needed to ensure the continuing viability of the Royal Hospital today and into the future.

SEC's scope and Package was to co-ordinate and manage the surveying and development of schedules for the removal , storage , repairs and on site finishing of the listed “Oak “ joinery within the existing Royal Hospital at Chelsea ,

Our works involved leasing and working with Peregrine Bryant the Architectural & Build Conservation Architects and English Heritage , our works included surveying and carrying out structural strengthening of the existing Timber floors , managing the overall repairs and replacement of the Internal listed Joinery to match and replace the existing Internal Oak panelling , pilasters , doors and frames etc. .to the standard required by the Client and English Heritage and to replicate and match the finishes to the Oak Joinery items to a finished state ,

The Project itself was latterly put forward for an awards one of the most comprehensive listed buildings in the UK , which SEC were extremely proud to be part of.
