We are very pleased to be appointed as principal roofing contractor for the first phase of restoration work at Doncaster’s famous Corn Exchange. The repairs will commence in October 2017, beginning a major improvement programme to bring the Grade II* listed building back to its former glory.
Located in the heart of the Doncaster markets, the Corn Exchange was built in the 19th century and was designed to be both a market building and a concert hall, hosting the composer Elgar when he conducted the London Symphony Orchestra in 1909.
Works will include removal and replacement of all slate roofs and lead works to the corn exchange, fish market and food hall buildings in accordance with Historic England requirements. The glazed barrel vault roof will be cleaned and the access gantry system improved to help future maintenance. We look forward to working closely with Doncaster Council to rejuvenate this magnificent building, the centre piece of the award winning Doncaster markets. We have recently worked alongside the council on the transformation of Doncaster Mansion House and Priory Place.
