Project overview.

Working with Hampshire county council and the heritage lottery fund we are currently carrying out works to conserve and preserve the historic nature of this grade II* listed building which falls within the top 5.8% of buildings of special interest.

Netley Chapel

About the project.

The project comprised of:

  • Conservation works to the existing fabric of the Chapel
  • Demolition of the existing toilet block
  • Alteration and repair works internally
  • Construction of a new single storey extension
  • New hard and soft landscaping to the external site
  • Minor offsite services and road amendments

In conjunction with these works major restoration elements to the windows have taken place. Brymor sourced a specialist carpenter who possessed the skill set to craft new window heads and glazing bars. Apprentices were employed on this project allowing traditional skills to be taught and learnt for future heritage schemes.
A major new element of this project is the mechanical and electrical (M&E) upgrade. M&E systems have been removed and a new sympatric yet compliant system installed, which will ensure minimum disruption to the building for many years to come.

Throughout the contract, the team used the dust suppression at base of rubble chute, used to disperse demolition material from the 2nd floor of building. Vital, given the proximity to the public and windy conditions.
