We have been involved in the design of remedial work to historic buildings, as well as made recommendations for their continued well-being, working sympathetically and within budget
Seaford Museum is located within in Martello Tower 74 in Seaford, East Sussex. It is Grade II listed and formed part of the series of 19th Century defences along the South Coast.
Springett Associates was asked to provide assessment and structural drawings for a lift shaft to be inserted within the fabric of the curtain wall to allow for disabled access. We also advised on the complex temporary works and the feasibility of providing a disabled access bridge across the moat.
Further work includes a structural assessment of part of the building for vehicular and public access.
Grade I Listed Fort
This fort is a Grade I listed fort on the Devon coast that has been granted £20 million in Lottery funding.
Springett Associates were required to provide a detailed survey on the structural condition of the whole fort and associated buildings, with a view to its renovation as a visitor centre and private residential accommodation.
Much of the fort was in poor condition and required a high level of attention during the survey in order for Springett Associates to provide the best
possible recommendations for remedial work.
Some areas will require only maintenance and repair of superficial damage. The decay of the fort was mainly due to water penetration and lack of air flow.
