Larger scale projects

6 October 2022 Posted by Samuel Sheldon News News Frontpage

This week Samuel Sheldon Ltd has many building projects that are coming to an end, as well as starting a much bigger project in Ulverston, and we are excited to share the progress with you.

Firstly St James School in Millom will be coming to an end this week; the electrician is finishing up a few minor jobs, and the aircon is also being fitted in the classrooms. The plumbing is near completion, and once the carpets have been fitted at the end of the week, the classrooms will be ready for the staff and children to move into and enjoy.

The weather has not been on Samuel Sheldon Ltd’s side this week, which means the garage and landscaping at St Bee’s halted on Tuesday and Wednesday. The team are now back and will be laying the patio; fingers are crossed the rain stays off. The retaining walls and steps have been completed, along with the superstructure of the garage. The next stage will be to complete the roof; once again, this is dependent on the weather.

We have a small job to be completed in Millom next week: rebuilding a wall for a new customer. Afton Street in barrow will also be completed by the end of the week, and Derwentwater Close will see the completion of the large garden wall that had the exterior dashing knocked down and the damaged areas of the wall repaired and rebuilt.

One of our major building projects starting next week will be restoration works at St James Church in Millom. The team will be carrying out stonework repairs, brickwork repointing using traditional lime base mortar, repairs to the led glass windows using traditional techniques, installation of modern damp-proof membranes with existing brickwork and repairs to the damaged lime plaster using traditional materials.

The next major project will be a conversion of an old library in Ulverston, the downstairs of the property will be converted into a bar/restaurant, and the upstairs will be converted into a flat. More information on this once the project has got underway.

Lots of enquiries have been coming through this week for various jobs, making us very busy up to summer next year.

We will travel to your home or business in and around the South of Cumbria, including the Copeland areas, Egremont, Seascale, Ravenglass, Bootle, Whitehaven, St Bees, Ulverston, Ambleside and Windermere.
