Project updates

24 October 2022 Posted by Samuel Sheldon News News Frontpage

We have not had an update on recent building projects over the past few weeks, so I think it’s about time we updated you all on what has been happening at Samuel Sheldon Ltd.

As mentioned previously, St James School in Millom has now been completed, but Samuel Sheldon Ltd is currently carrying out some extra jobs inside the classroom. They are installing a media wall as well as more cupboard storage. Outside, the exposed areas have now been filled in with tarmac.

St Bees, which consists of a garage and some landscaping work, is coming along nicely now that we have had a break in the weather. The groundwork and brickwork are now complete, and the GRP roof has been installed. The next phase of the project will be the rendering and dashing, and installation of the garage doors. This will be completed over the next few weeks.

A restoration project has started this week 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. A similar restoration project is also being carried out at Ulfa Church in Broughton.

One of the building projects started a few weeks ago at Colin pit Farm has also seen progress with the plastering completed. This property will also have a kitchen and bathroom refurbishment which will be arriving and installed in the next week.

Samuel Sheldon Ltd has returned to St Bernard’s School to perform maintenance work during the half-term holiday.
