Strengthen Existing Organ Support and Install New State of the Art Organ
The brief was to provide scaffolding for the planned Organ works within the Cathedral – A new organ was installed whilst the area remained live. The Cathedral also formed a Public gallery/viewing area so the Public could view the works being carried out.
Designed and approved to accommodate minimal disruption to the 15th century Cathedral. Working to tight tolerances due to the close proximity of existing internal Cathedral features.
Delivery was out of hours with materials transferred by foot into the main Cathedral areas. Working to exacting standards around existing high value features and services etc.
“The Cathedral is delighted to be installing a new organ, mounted on the quire screen at the centre of the building. The project is a major step in achieving our aim to secure a 600-year music tradition at the Cathedral. The new instrument will provide new learning opportunities and support both the choir and the congregation for many years to come. We would like to thank all contractors involved in these extremely sensitive works.”
