In 2016 we completed work to the façade of a number of properties on Grey Street, Newcastle upon Tyne.
Many would describe Grey Street as architecturally, the jewel in the crown of the North East. It has one of the highest concentrations of listed buildings in the entire country due to their historical and architectural importance.
These prestigious Grade I and II buildings have centuries of character and their grand exterior form the back drop to the beating heart of Newcastle city centre.
As a building company, listed buildings come with their own challenges to renovate and on this project, S V Rutter Ltd were proud to be responsible for the large scale restoration. We carried out a full condition survey of the façade to a number of adjoining properties. The intricate details of the natural stone had to be carefully recorded to ensure that our restoration trades could prepare replacement stone in advance to ensure that time on site and disruption to the tenants and general public was minimised. The skill and care taken at each stage of the renovation process was essential to ensure that the restoration works are seamlessly integrated with the existing building.
In 2019, similar works have been completed on Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne.
£400,000 project cost.
