Mansion House, a Grade I listed Georgian property in Doncaster, is a fantastic example of Faithful+Gould's expertise in conservation and heritage, providing feasibility, design, regulatory advice, procurement and on site monitoring services for a scheme of external maintenance works.
The Mansion House was originally constructed in 1749 and is one of only five Mansion Houses built in the country to provide accommodation for the Mayor and entertainment space for the town. The importance of Mansion House to the town of Doncaster and the country's historic building stock was therefore at the forefront of our minds when considering potential external maintenance works.
Throughout the design stage Faithful+Gould have worked closely with the Local Authority Conservation Department to ensure that the final designs would meet the requirements of the Listed Building Consent application process.
Our team was integral to the prioritisation of the external repair works and completed a feasibility study which considered the highest priority works and potential budget costs to complete. Our in-house building surveyors and quantity surveyors combined our maintenance planning, cost planning and heritage skills to provide robust recommendations for a scope of works. Throughout the design stage Faithful+Gould have worked closely with the Local Authority Conservation Department to ensure that the final designs would meet the requirements of the Listed Building Consent application process.
During the construction phase we provided a watching brief over the works, including quality monitoring and liaison with the Conservation Officer providing swift resolutions required to keep the project on track. Mansion House remained open during the works and continues to provide a beautiful venue in the town centre which adds to the attraction of the historic town of Doncaster.
