Chester Cathedral Song School

Client: The Dean and Chapter

New Song School building

Built to the highest standards, the new Song School sits easily with the medieval Cathedral.

The project comprised the construction of new accommodation at first and second floor levels above the existing ground floor rooms, on the site of the old Monk’s Dormitory. Access is via a new lift and stair tower.

The external walls are in red sandstone from the Locharbriggs Quarry in Dumfries and the roof is covered in Heather Blue natural slates from the Penrhyn Quarry in Bethesda, both to match the surrounding cathedral buildings.

We provided pre-construction cost projections to the Dean and Chapter and a full quantity surveying service for the built project.
