DOWN AMPNEY MANOR
Of outstanding historical importance, Down Ampney Manor in Gloucestershire demanded absolute compliance to the technical and aesthetic intricacies of the architectural plans.
A single story extension featuring gothic mullioned windows and castellated entablature was replicated throughout the first floor extension, conservatory wing and swimming pool pavilion.
The chimney installation presented a particular challenge when it was discovered that the supporting masonry also needed replacing, resulting in its removal in a single piece to eliminate damage to the carved sections whilst the sub-structure was replaced.
“It was only through Meister’s insight and their skill that enabled our team to complete this operation without costly delay in both time and finance.” – David Paul, Senior Contracts Manger, Kingerlee Ltd, Contractors, Oxford.
“An installation such as this required specialist management and this in turn resulted in this project being selected by merit and featured in the RIBA annual publication.”
“Peter Yiangou Associates LLP worked successfully with Meister Masonry on this prestigious Grade I Listed property and were most impressed by their stonemasonry skills in conservation and craftsmanship” – Peter Yiangou Associates.
