NET CS is renowned in the telecoms industry for our work with the Church of England portfolio and installations on historic church buildings.
This year NET CS assisted an Infrastructure provider with a different challenge on a historic building.
The Water Tower, which hosts multiple operators, needed structural intervention and repairs, but had the added complication of being ‘listed’.
NET CS carried out a detailed structural survey and then provided a restoration schedule addressing the critical issues. After securing Listed Building Consent we had the greenlight to proceed in the summer of 2023.
The works involved a full brick clean, brick replacements, repointing, new lead roof, structural strengthening and intervention works to the tower turrets, new finials, timber works, internal electrics, and a new fall arrest system.
One of the many challenges was temporarily relocating the MNO’s equipment whilst the works took place to ensure no loss of service. However, with careful planning and cooperation by all parties, the equipment was located on the scaffold on a temporary basis and later reinstated.
The project finished on time, (5 months!) on budget and everyone agreed that the final result looked incredible.
Thanks to all parties involved and if you need anything ‘resolving’ on a historic or listed building don’t hesitate to get in touch…… It’s what we do.
