Salford Museum and Art Gallery

Salford Museum and Art Gallery
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 were appointed to this project because of the long-term relationship with Urban Vision and our considerate approach to construction projects of a sensitive nature.

 

Our vast experience of working in occupied buildings and sometimes challenging environments 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 covering and ceilings were carefully removed stored for reuse and sympathetically reinstated.

 

Timber cornice and roof repairs. Repairs to Timber Cornice and pitched roofs and provision of permanent roof access from first floor mezzanine level.  The museum remained open throughout the duration of our work.
