From time to time, we do get asked to create areas for commercial projects, these can be quite interesting, and we find it hard to say no. These include projects such as laying a new 300mm sawn York stone floor inside Durham Cathedral. You can imagine that working on a Grade One listed English Heritage building is hard to say no to, particularly when we would be working to a 3mm tolerance over the whole area. Of course, we said yes!
The Arch Bishop TuTu Garden.
We have also recently built a communal garden for Arch Bishop Holgate School in York. Named ‘The Arch Bishop TuTu Garden, it was actually opened by the man himself. As with every project this came in on time, and on budget, and is enjoyed by everyone at the school.
The Spiritual Pathway.
Located at Clifton parish Church, the congregation had spent eight years hand making mosaic tiles that spelt out ‘Those Who Hope In The Lord Will Renew Their Strength, They Will Soar On Wings Like Eagles’
The design was to create a new driveway, and locate the each, individual tiles within the driveway, that lead into the church itself. This needed to be specified for heavy traffic also, and was a joy to be involved with.
Opened by The Arch Bishop of York, this will be there for many many years to come.
