The project is the restoration and extension to the Grade 2 listed Neville Hall in Newcastle, constructed 1869-1872.
The gothic Victorian building formed a major role in the development of the coal and mining history to the North East and the world. The works funded by the HLF are intended to repair and replace the elaborate stone façade which have been corroded by time, alongside restoration to the stained glass to the Hall and upgrades to the original slate roofs.
The works include a large new central core to provide lifts, staircase, toilets and much needed office accommodation alongside new heating and lighting systems to the building. HL are appointed as Conservation Architects and Interior Designers, assisting the client and Project Managers in the HLF applications and development of the project.
