D&N Construction was hired to undertake the full restoration of an iconic listed building in the heart of Salisbury, a stone’s throw from the city’s Charter Market.
The project was logistically challenging due to a number of factors including its central location, rivers flowing underneath the property and difficult access.
What’s more, the restoration was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and consequent restrictions.
This unique project required patience, tremendous attention to detail and lateral thinking from our team.
We started by laying new foundations in order to adequately cover the rivers that ran underneath; preserving the stone windows by carefully and sensitively taking them down and rebuilding them, and restoring the masonry.
The decision was made to keep the original shop front; an important acknowledgement of the rich history of the building.
We also restored a 700-year-old door - an element of the project we’re especially proud of!
The Salisbury Orangery is a truly breathtaking property - effortlessly marrying stunning original features with modern functionality & structural integrity, and has recently been announced the winner of the Salisbury Civic Society’s Lord Congleton Award.
If you are considering, or embarking on, restoring or converting a listed building, D&N Construction has a wealth of knowledge and experience in working on historic buildings.
Our team understands that these exceptional assets demand specialist knowledge, remarkable attention to detail and the utmost care.
