Project Description

Built by the royal masons in 1250, the Chapter House of Westminster Abbey was originally used in the 13th century by Benedictine monks for their daily meetings. It later became a meeting place of the King’s Great Council and the Commons, predecessors of today’s Parliament.

Goddard Consulting were part of the project team for the £3.7 million restoration of this much celebrated World Heritage Site. The works comprised of extensive stone and lead roof restoration works. The building remained open to visitors throughout the contract; due to the complexity of the required scaffolding there were significant public safety issues that were successfully mitigated with the appointed Principal Contractor.
