The West End Development – Project Update June 2019

Work has proceeded steadily over the weeks since R J Pinnock and Sons started on site with the following milestones achieved:

  • Organ dismantled and, together with the church furnishings, put into store.
  • New water main – trench excavated and pipe laid together with data duct for future use.
  • Excavation for new foul drainage complete, cesspool installed and connecting pipe work installed.
  • Replacement of defective plaster at the west end of the nave and in the tower complete.
  • First stage construction of new floors in tower and nave.
  • First stage construction of new lavatory and improved belfry access.
  • First stage electrical work undertaken.
  • Existing floor ducts cleared and repaired as necessary.

The project is on schedule and the congregation looks forward to returning to the church in September.

We are grateful to the University of Cambridge, Department of Estate Management and Institute of Continuing Education and to the Garden Department at Madingley Hall for their co-operation during the building programme.
