Our Office is pleased to have working relationships with a number of Churches, many spanning over thirty five years.
As such, we have worked on a number of Church schemes, and these have included developing new church buildings; remodelling, alterations and extensions to existing church buildings; and, the conservation and restoration work to Listed church buildings.
What our Clients say about our service to our Churches;
On behalf of the Church, and my Committee, I would like to thank you and your colleagues for the concept and design of the transformation of our building, which I am sure hour are aware has received many favourable compliments. Indeed one soon forgets what the original building looked like. It involved a lot of hard work by all involved but the end result made it well worthwhile.
The Practice also undertakes Quinquennial Inspections for a number of churches, manses, and other ecclesiastical buildings.
What our Clients say about our Quinquennial Inspections;
In December, 2011, Vagdia and Holmes undertook a Quinquennial Inspection of our Church. The Church premises are not the easiest to survey, as the Church itself is 150 years old, and a large Hall, Kitchen, Meeting Rooms and Youth Wing were added in the 1960s.
We admired the professional manner in which Mr Vagdia carried out the Inspection. He inspected every aspect of our Church premised from the roof down to the cellar. The detailed report he sent us after his inspection was extremely valuable, as under the headings: Of utmost Urgency; Essential with the next 12 months and Essential within the next 5 years, there were itemised everything that needed attention.
The report was excellent as there were many photographs showing areas that required attention also. I would have no hesitation in recommending Vagdia and Holmes to you.
For Churches that are looking for further resources to help them with maintenance, property information or funding, please visit the Church of England's national resource website, Church Care, and the Methodist Church's Property website.
Additional information is also available with respect to funding, via the Heritage Lottery Fund website.
Some of the Churches that we work with have made a commitment to the "Eco-congregation", a partnership between the Government funded environmental charity ENCAMS, and the Environmental Issues Network of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. Can your Church care for God's creation?
