Thomasons win another Structural Award

Thomasons recently celebrated winning a prestigious Structural Award North West for its work on the restoration of Wythenshawe Hall in Manchester.

Organised by The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the awards recognise the very best in engineering across the North West of England.

Thomasons provided project management and structural engineering services for the reinstatement of Wythenshawe Hall, which had incurred significant fire damage in March 2016 following a devastating arson attack.

The practice was appointed by Manchester City Council to act on their behalf in a project which required extensive experience of both restoration of fire damage and working with heritage buildings; an intuitive approach and a delicate touch.

Thomasons focused on maintaining the building’s structural stability and prevention of further deterioration of the Grade II* listed manor house and to reinstate its external envelope. Restoration of the interior followed. Thomasons brought in Buttress Architects to work alongside them.
