New Ian Williams’ refurbishment projects helping the National Trust to fulfil its mission ‘to preserve and protect the heritage of our places and spaces for ever, for everyone’
With decades of experience looking after, refurbishing and helping to protect listed, conservation and heritage buildings, Ian Williams has recently been appointed to partner with The National Trust on a series of high profile property refurbishments.
An Ian Williams team of specialist craftsmen, including painters, decorators and carpenters, recently completed a project to refurbish National Trust property, Sudbury Hall in Derbyshire. One of the UK’s finest Restoration mansions with Grade 1 listed building status, Sudbury which has featured in the BBC’s Pride and Prejudice series, is also now home to the National Trust Museum of Childhood. Improvements undertaken by Ian Williams to this national treasure, included the sensitive refurbishment of windows, doors, soffits and fascias within the main property and bell tower.
In addition to a selection of highly specialist painting projects across a variety of other National Trust properties in the Cotswolds, the Ian Williams’ team has also been appointed to carry out external painting and decorations to the visitor centre and café at Chedworth Roman Villa. Dating back to the 2nd century, Chedworth is one of the largest and grandest Roman villas in Britain and is an elite dwelling with stunning mosaics, arranged around 3 sides of a courtyard.
The painting team in Plymouth have also recently completed the external painting to the windows and fascias of a café, cottage and shop, as well as carrying out roof works to replace broken tiles and ridge tiles on a National Trust holiday cottage that’s a restored mill house just above Wembury Beach in Devon.
Mike Turner, Ian Williams’ Executive Director comments: “These projects are really exciting schemes and we’re delighted to be delivering them for the National Trust. Our dedication, integrity and application of technical skills is the foundation of our success on each project. Working on high profile sites which display such rich history, requires specialist experience and respect and we relish the opportunity to showcase how our teams work sensitively and with respect to help conserve these important buildings for years to come.”
