- Second Excerpt:
This contract covered the replacement of 450 square metres of lead on the Cathedral's South East Transept roof. The contract win continued our proud history of restoration work at the Cathedral. In 2001 we undertook work on the roof of the Corona Chapel, which is topped by stone pinnacles (known as Becket’s Crown) followed by works to the South Aisle roof in 2003.
This contract was our third and largest to date and marked the first phase of a £7.5 million programme of roofing repairs, which was a major element of a £30 million building conservation programme launched in 2006.
