Project 2: Heritage Lottery Fund requirements for Tunstall Town Hall
With the exception of a small area of the ground floor, Tunstall Town Hall had sat vacant for a considerable number of years. As with any vacant building, Stoke-on-Trent Council had a responsibility to inspect it on a regular basis, particularly as funding was obtained for its up-keep.
A full building survey and schedule of condition identified defects to the property that had incurred since its last inspection. Remedial measures for the repairs were then mapped out, with indications of the likely cost. This equipped the Council with a benchmark for expected costs.
Our findings and recommendations formed a detailed building survey report, which Stoke Council will action and use to monitor the building’s condition going forward. This way, they can make informed decisions at every juncture and preserve this historic estate.
“ This was a 10/10 service. I’d recommend Jonathan Cornes Associates for future projects.”
