News - latest developments

Work is now complete on the refurbishment of Sir Charles Reilly's Guild of Students building in Liverpool. MMC provided the Statement of Significance and Impact Assessment for various alterations, and we provided detailed specifications for the repair and restoration for the project architects.  Ornate Interiors of Leeds carried out the decorative plasterwork repair and Crick Smith carried out the APA, with GS Decorating carrying out the specialist re-painting.
If you are in the area, check it out, as the foyer and former Debating Chamber (The Gilmour Hall) is open to the public and is a spectacular interior of 1911-13, well worth seeing. It is now approached from University Square - see link;

Work is due to start on site at Victoria Park, St. Helens, having secured HLF funding under the Parks for People grant scheme. Work includes the restoration of the grade II listed gate lodge, the Italianate sunken garden and walls, terracotta statuary and the addition of a new conservatory on the footprint of the original Messenger conservatory.  MMC have provided the specialist conservation advice to the project team, carrying out research on the buildings and producing repair specifications.
