Sensitive Repairs to the Nave Sanctuary
USL carried out the sensitive stone repairs to the Nave Sanctuary flooring. Despite the Nave Sanctuary only being a modern installation, it was looking a bit tired with damaged sections.
St James is a glorious Victorian parish church, rich in original stained glass, monuments and fittings, and home to a lively and active community. Although the parish of Paddington is medieval, a church was first built on this site in 1843. It was substantially rebuilt by the illustrious Victorian architect GE Street, in a neo-Gothic style of unusual and generous breadth.
In recent years the church was reordered and a modern nave sanctuary was constructed, at whose heart is a large square wooden altar, lit from beneath (the church and its interior is especially atmospheric after daylight has faded). To keep the interior looking fresh, marble repairs were required on the flooring.
Internal Repairs included;
"We found the US team friendly, efficient, most considerate and willing – it was a pleasure to have the guys at St James’s and we’d have no hesitation in recommending them and your company to others. The site foreman was really marvellous and his team the same."
