The installation of a new fire alarm system at the National Trust Property - Hatchlands near Guildford, required a degree of builders work which was massively complex because of the historically important environment in which the work was carried out.
Carefully working with Robert Adams plaster work in order to gain access to the fabric of the building required enormous consideration.
Floors need to be lifted for the same reason. Normally a simple enough process requiring precious extra care to avoid damage to the plaster work beneath.
Even our scaffolding was polished before being taken into the house.
C Ansell & Sons Ltd. undertook a major exterior re-decoration project at Hatchlands in the summer of 2010. The work involved carefully preparing and
repairing a large number of sash windows on the main building and then re-painting with old fashioned lead paint which was specially made. The next phase of the project was to refurbish the clock tower including the restoration of the clock faces and redecorate the National Garden Scheme offices.
