scots church

Evolving upon our previous focussed works to assist the Church, Flightpath were engaged to undertake a holistic condition assessment of the state heritage listed Church (1850-51 and 1856) and prepare a Conservation Management Strategy, considered to be a practical guide to the maintenance of a heritage place.

The Church, formerly Chalmers Church and believed to be the second oldest in the colony, is of bluestone construction with red-brick dressings with a corrugated metal clad roof (replacing an early Willunga Slate roof). 

The process has involved detailed investigations and recording of the sub-floor and external envelope, the latter from a 53m travel tower and all in collaboration with a structural engineer.  Observations of dilapidation were then reviewed to establish underlying modes of deterioration and how remediation actions could be could be incorporated into a prioritised schedule of costed conservation works, implemented as funds permit.

It is anticipated high-priority observations contained within the Strategy will be promptly translated into works documentation to enable development approval to be sought and progressive works implementation to commence.
