Works to the Bristol Chaplaincy are approximately half way complete, with completion anticipated in July 2022 in readiness for students to occupy the accommodation from September onwards. The works include a complete re-roofing of the property in a zinc covering, removal of the later addition glazed external staircase and formation of a new part glazed link building to the Chapel. The new link building will house two new accessible toilets as well as an accessible lift providing access to the lower ground floor parish rooms. The existing seven bed student accommodation is being remodelled to provide 15 new En Suite bedrooms, alongside a communal common room, dining room, kitchen and laundry.
Works at St Bernadette’s church are nearing completion, with the new standing seam metal sheet covering having been applied to the double hyperbolic paraboloid roof. Internally, the main church has been fully redecorated, new mechanical and electrical installations have been installed as well as restoration of the tiled floor finish throughout. Additional works are taking place to re-roof and remodel the church hall.
