The current Hereford Cathedral, located at Hereford in England, dates from 1079. Its most famous treasure is Mappa Mundi, a mediaeval map of the world dating from the 13th century. The cloister was built in 1475 for the 27 Vicars Choral who provided all the sung services for the Cathedral and lived a communal life.
Greenwoods provided Quantity Surveying and CDM Advisor services to the Dean and Chapter of Hereford Cathedral on a major new project to restore the exquisite Cathedral Cloisters. This included extensive stone repair and restoration, replacement of structural joinery and lime plastered ceilings to the Cloisters Walkway, the Eastern Range and the Custos House.
The works were exceptionally sensitive as not only is the building, part of the Cathedral range, Grade I listed, but the Cloisters are home to both the public and clergy who have to have access at all times.
As well as the historic restoration work to the Cloisters, the project also included the development of a new build extension adjacent the Lay Clerks Vestry range. This incorporated a two storey extension, modifications and alterations to the 14th Century building and associated external works.
