Urgent repairs to be carried out at St Aloysius’ Church campanile
April 2 2019
Mosaic Architecture + Design are to carry out a series of urgent repairs to St Aloysius’ Church, Glasgow, after a £93,400 Heritage Lottery Fund grant was secured.
The cash will fund vital masonry work and external fabric repairs to the bell tower, with contractors moving on site in a matter of weeks in a six-month job valued at £400k.
Stephen Mallon, director of Mosaic, said: “There is always a degree of uncertainty and anticipation when relying on lottery funding for projects and there was a great effort made by the full design team, including PDA and Armours, not to mention the whole client team who fully engaged in the process and the commitment to delivering the interpretation plan and community benefits of the scheme.”
Fr Dermot Preston SJ, parish priest at St Aloysius’ Church added: “We are delighted at the news of this grant award which will mean we can, at last, make the building water-tight and maintain the church-tower as an important heritage landmark on the skyline of central Glasgow.”
The parish community have raised over £100k towards the work from their own fundraising.
