Featured Project: St Botolph's Church, Aspley Guise

Working under the supervision of the renowned ecclesiastical architect Bruce Deacon, NSE were commissioned to carry out the complete replacement of the lead roof the south aisle of St Botolph Church. After erecting a fully weather proof scaffolding cocoon and stripping the old cast leadheet which was sent for re-casting, it was made aware that extensive timber works and stone repairs would be necessary prior to installing the new sand cast lead roof. These included re-boarding of the entire roof substraite and the full reconstruction of box gutters and outlets. Following the code 7 & 8 sand cast roof installation, the old existing temporary palstic downpipes were replaced with modern powder coated cast aluminium. All works were brought in on time and on budget, another succsess story for the committed craftsmen at NSE.
