Pleased to have been commissioned in May 2020 Built Heritage Assessment for Tudor House Museum 38-42 Friar Street in Worcester. Document and assessment now complete. Fascinating building to analyse, hope the 185 page report will help the conservation and interpretation of the site
We have carried out risk assessments for staying safe during the Covid19 crisis and are able to carry out much of our work as before now lockdown has eased. We will follow RICs guidelines for surveying interiors of buildings and will request you vacant rooms and keep social distancing in place. This will mean asking questions about recent health and using appropriate protective measures for our safety and yours.
