Tredegar House is grade I listed house of medieval origin, though the house today was essentially built during the 1670’s. It was taken over by the National Trust in 2011 when Davies Sutton were given a tight programme to plan and develop the conversion of the existing workshops into new visitor facilities in readiness for their opening.
We are now undertaking enveloping works to the Mansion, part of a £15m ten year programme of repairs and alterations. Works include re-roofing and renewing dormer windows to a specific period following poorly conceived repairs in the 1970’s. Chimney stacks have been rebuilt along with lead flat roofs to address severe water ingress.
During the works an early timber framed structure was uncovered and recorded before adaptation and repair. All work is being done whilst the house is open to the public, allowing access onto the scaffold to view the work close up.
