33 Chapel Street, Edinburgh

The Orthodox church was a functioning place of worship situated in a very busy area of Edinburgh where both pedestrian and traffic had to be considered throughout our works to avoid unnecessary disruption to both the building user and surrounding areas.  The works comprised of external fabric repairs and involved the complete stripping and reslating of the roof in existing and second-hand sourced Scotch slate including the renewal of all the slate flashings and associated finishes. The lead flashing details were extremely ornate in areas and required existing details to be replicated. Joiner work repairs were carried out to the roof structure as well as rooflights. All cast iron goods were repaired/renewed as required and painter work of all external surfaces on completion.  All the stonework to the elevations were repointed and a comprehensive replacement of the existing defective stones was carried out including extensive carving work to form the ornate stone detailing including crosses and a functioning stone clock.
