£3.1m project brings grade II* brutalist landmark up to scratch
Purcell has announced the completion of its £3.1m repair and refurbishment programme for the grade II* listed Clifton Cathedral in Bristol.
Work started on the building – properly known as the Roman Catholic Cathedral of SS Peter and Paul – in 2015 and required 86 tons of replacement lead for the building’s pitched roof, among a litany of other work.
Designed by Ron Weeks of the Percy Thomas Partnership, the cathedral was built between 1969 and 1973, and praised for its “serenity and simplicity” and the “modest theatre-like composition of its irregular, elongated hexagonal plan”.
