Sheffield General Cemetery


Nov03 Overall picture.


 Refurbishment of an existing listed gatehouse to Sheffield General Cemetery. The works included the complete reconstruction of the fire damaged West Wing using Ashlar stonework all supported on a reinforced concrete ring beam over the cellar area.  The roof of the central area was completely replaced using curved Glulan beams which provide support to the impressive plaster coffer panels to the soffit. The East Wing was refurbished to provide living accommodation and includes a green oak link which is perched high above the river Porter below.
