The Grade II listed Salford Museum and Art Gallery has masonry pillars and detailed masonry features on both the exterior façade and within the interior. Due to water ingress over a period of many years there has been a significant development of wet and dry rot in the main art gallery, and ancillary rooms. Schofields where appointed for this project for our long term relationship with Urban Vision and considerate approach to construction projects of a sensitive nature.
Our vast experience of working in occupied buildings and sometimes challenging environment’s was a key factor in our success on this project. The Museum and Art Gallery remained open seamlessly during the whole operation. Noise suppression and dust control were carefully monitored to minimise disruption. Large areas of 200 year old ornate plaster coving and ceilings were carefully removed stored for reuse and sympathetically reinstated.
