Opening Out Commercial Floor Space in the Centre of York
In this case a builder that we had worked with before called us in to look at opening up the rear space to a grade I listed building. Here we were asked to remove as many internal walls as possible to create as large as possible area. We surveyed the site and produced existing drawings, then liaising with the conservation officer for the interaction of the new frame and the listed areas we produced a scheme to remove most of internal supports whilst maintaining the stability of the whole structure. Due to the location of the site special care had to be taken to ensure that the new structure did not cause consolidation of the mediaeval fill which the new columns and party walls were bearing upon.
