The Minster Church of Saint George is one of Doncaster’s most architecturally important buildings, standing at the heart of the town of Doncaster, where a church has stood for over eight centuries. The present church, which is Grade I listed, was built to the designs of George Gilbert Scott between 1854-1858, after the medieval church was destroyed by fire in 1853.
The most prominent of the Minster’s assets is the clock manufactured by Dent, whose works most notably include the design of the Palace of Westminster Clock, more commonly known as Big Ben, and a spectacular five manual organ by the renowned German organ builder Edmund Schulze.
This project focuses on the repair works to the North Transept, comprising a new lead roof covering, the repair and replacement of the existing carved stone sculptures, ashlar repairs, cleaning and repointing. This phase is funded in part by English Heritage.
Greenwood Projects were appointed to create a detailed Schedule of Works, and handle all financial aspects of the project during both the pre and post tender periods.
