Location = St Lawrence, Essex

Architect = Tim Venn / Daniel Connal Partnership

Summary = Construction of Heritage room annexe to St Lawrence Newland Church.

Challenge = The client wished to provide a new heritage room linked to the existing church. The heritage room was to be built of modern construction, but with a nod to the existing church to ensure the aesthetic is in keeping.

Provided an external accessible ramp with handrail to heritage room entrance.

"The monthly meetings between us, Bakers and our Contract Administrators (Daniel Connal Partnership) worked well and we were delighted with the result. We have no hesitation in recommending Bakers to others and look forward to being able to use your services again.”
