Deterioration in this 19th century grade A listed building was affecting complex details such as decorative stone pinnacles, finials, crenellated balustrades and array of rare zinc lattice windows. Original windows were removed, stripped, soldered, reglazed and redecorated. New zinc lattice casements windows were introduced to satisfy modern ventilation requirements while retaining the original character, materials and proportions. The phased 18-month programme on a live campus aimed for the highest quality of workmanship to deliver detail so close to the original it is difficult to distinguish.
