Case Study: The Triangle Pub

Categories: rebuilding, shopfitting, insurance, listed building, health & safety.

A 17th century former coach house, this property was a Grade II listed building that had been part demolished by an HGV. The affected corner of the building required a partial reconstruction of all floors and roof.

Historical architectural methods identical to those used in the property's original construction were employed, and the work was overseen by a specialist Historical Buildings Inspector from York.

A full internal and external propping facilitated the course by course deconstruction, from the roof and down three stories. Each course was then rebuilt using the original stone bonded with a carefully blended hydraulic lime mortar, and the internal aspects finished with a lime and horse-hair plaster composition.

All ceilings were reconstructed using carefully selected reclaimed oak timbers fixed with oak dowls and pegs, and finished with a riven lath and lime plaster composition.

Such is the semi-national historical importance of this project, that the completed works are used as a case-example of exemplary listed buildings renovation.
