FREE Project site visits
Tuesday 14th March
Visits available from 9.30am and 11am
(approx 1hr 40mins per group visit)
Locations include 1 Albert Road (Bloom),
2-3 Exchange Place (former Kalinka)
These site visits, facilitated by SPACE Architects on behalf of Middlesbrough Council, will involve a chance to see, from on the scaffold, conservation and development work being part funded by High Street Heritage Action Zone grants.
Project Conservation Architects for two of the buildings from SPACE and Ainsworth Spark Associates, along with representatives from the contractors undertaking the works, will be on hand to describe not only the history of the buildings but the methods being used to repair the historic fabric. There will also be an explanation of the process such projects must go through.
The two buildings you will visit are made from different materials and are from different dates so a wide range of repair works are being undertaken. Works to various elements will be at different stages, allowing visitors to see how the fabric is prepared, how the works are undertaken, and how completed work looks up close rather than from on the ground.
– A safety induction will be carried out as part of each site visit.
– Safety helmets and Hi-Viz jackets will be provided.
– Participants will be expected to wear their own robust, enclosed footwear.
– The visit will require participants to be able to climb narrow ladders onto scaffolds.
– Suitable for 16 years and over.
Visits will include free refreshments kindly provided by Commerce House in Exchange Square.
