Preservation Project

A project is now underway to preserve and conserve the Stone Cross War Memorial.  Version 2 of the full project specification can be read here.  The phases and stages of the project are:

 Phase I – Review

Phase I – Stage A – Create a shortlist of Conservation Architects for Phase I Stage D

Phase I – Stage B – Obtain Quotes for Phase I Stage D

Phase I – Stage C – Obtain Funds for Phase I Stage D

Phase I – Stage D – Review and Analysis of the SCWM

Phase I – Stage E – Determine Phase II Management Structure

 Phase II – Preservation

Phase II – Stage A – Obtain Agreements and Permissions

Phase II – Stage B – Obtain Quotes for Phase II D

Phase II – Stage C – Obtain Funds for Phase II D

Phase II – Stage D – Preservation of the SCWM

The Review phase of the project will assess the state of the SCWM, including its stability, and produce a Statement of Work that a Conservation Contractor can work to.  The assessment needs to be done by an accredited Conservation Architect to meet the requirements of the War Memorials Trust grants and the Faculty requirements of the Church.  A shortlist (Phase I Stage A) has been drawn up from the official register and a request for quotation sent out (Phase I Stage B); four responses were received and have been assessed.

The overall project timescale is currently expected to be as shown below.
