This Grade II Listed Georgian town house front door, frame and surround had all deteriorated beyond economic repair. Richard prepared a specification and rationale for the Historic Environment Officer as part of the process of gaining permission to make the necessary like for like replacement. The new door frame incorporated a modern draught reduction seal. The original ironmongery was reused and a new lock introduced to achieve current insurance standard of security. All painting was undertaken and re-finished after leadwork and remedial rendering were complete.
