Lancaster Royal Grammar School
The project delivered a full replacement of the existing slate roof including sympathetic renewal of parapets and chimney stacks. These works reduce future maintenance and extend the life of the Grade II listed Old School Building which was built in 1851. This building plays an important role for the school both in terms of its iconic physical presence and central location on the school site.
On appointment, Wilson Mason undertook a detailed condition review of the existing building fabric. Due to the building’s listed status, the team has worked in close co-operation with the Victorian Society to provide a solution in keeping with the building’s heritage and stature.
Corroded steel window frames have been replaced throughout the sixth form centre and all existing single glazed windows were exchanged with double glazed units to help reduce heat loss.
