Our Sectors: Places of Worship
Cathedrals & Churches of Historical Importance
Synergy has been involved with over 15 of the country’s finest Cathedrals including St Paul’s London, Canterbury, St David’s, Gloucester, Lichfield and Wells. Our relationships with many of them extend to over 20 years.
Additionally we have worked upon a number of Churches of historic and architectural importance including Bath Abbey, Doncaster Minster and St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol.
The projects undertaken are not limited to the repair and conservation of the historic fabric but can extend to improvements to enhance the setting for worship as well as providing facilities for church staff, congregations and visitors. These include liturgical re-ordering, lighting schemes, toilets, shops, restaurants, education centres, choir schools and offices. Many of these are to be found within the existing building but others are new build extensions within the historic setting.
A number of these projects are partly funded by external grants and therefore commissions can involve assistance in the preparation of initial grant applications, and subsequent submissions for draw down of grants from donors as the work proceeds.
