Greendale completes specialist works on historic Christchurch town hall

Christchurch’s Old Town Hall, where Greendale has completed its restoration

Chartered builder Greendale Construction has completed a major restoration contract on the Old Town Hall in Christchurch, Dorset.

The comprehensive remedial works, carried out for Christchurch Town Council, began in September 2023, addressing the building’s deteriorating roof and stonework after concerns over lead corrosion. 

The Grade II-listed historic building, also known as the Mayor’s Parlour, has had external stonework and building repairs, roofing work, and lead work on the top elevation.

Internally, the Old Town Hall has benefited from a refurbishment with new bathrooms, kitchen, carpets and decoration.  

A high-level, ladder beam-designed scaffold was erected to allow hoisting of replacement heavy stone elements at roof level.

Rob Hooker, director of Greendale Construction, said: “This has been a very satisfactory project to work on with Elcock Associates for Christchurch Town Council. Our talented team has skilfully restored and refurbished an important part of Christchurch’s history.”

He added: “Greendale is delighted to have been part of bringing the hall back to its former glory, where it will now be used as a vibrant hub for the community for many years to come.”
