Our Sectors: Ecclesiastical
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.
Cathedrals & Churches of Historical Importance
We have been involved in many ecclesiastical projects over the years, from small Parish Churches and non-conformist Chapels to large Cathedrals. Our specialist ecclesiastical team understands that any decisions made must take into consideration the mission of the Church, its forms of worship and funding, as well as the buildings history, its aesthetics and construction. Our work in this sector is diverse, undertaking anything from quinquennial inspections, budgeting, maintenance, refurbishment, alterations and repairs to new buildings and accommodation projects. Synergy enjoys close working relationships with some of the leading architects in the country. Our specialist team is passionate about their work and the people they work with; together we can help realise the vision of your Church community
