Ingleton Wood begins work at London’s Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn
Property and construction consultants Ingleton Wood has announced it is working with the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn on a remedial programme of its historic estate.
Ingleton Wood has previously completed a refurbishment project on one of the Inn’s grade I listed buildings.
For this project, remedial works will include electrical repairs and replacement, plumbing and heating alongside renewing the water services across the estate.
Lincoln’s Inn aims to minimise disruption to its commercial and residential tenants by programming the remedial work in five-year cycles.
Wesley Henderson, director of building services engineering at Ingleton Wood and his team will provide a ten-year prioritised mechanical and electrical plan for the estate.
Henderson said: “I’ve been a mechanical and electrical engineer for 30 years and you never know exactly what you are going to find here.”
He added: “It’s a real privilege to be working there. In some ways you feel like a curator. When you are looking to do repairs, or replacements, you have to think carefully about how this would affect the building fabric.”
A spokesman for Lincoln’s Inn concluded: “We take seriously our responsibilities for this very special estate in the centre of London: our buildings remain in daily use and require expert care so that we can be confident that this will continue to be the case in the future. We are pleased to be working with Ingleton Wood in preserving the Inn for future generations.”
