Located three miles from Birmingham’s city centre, Highbury Hall is Grade ll* listed mansion constructed back in 1879. Highbury was the Birmingham home and political base of Joseph Chamberlain and his family. The house was built in venetian gothic style, richly decorated with images of animals, birds and plant life. After 140 years, the roof needed major repairs.

Offering multi-disciplinary services to the project, Acivico Group have recently completed works to the historical site, which spanned a full range of services to both the exterior and interior.

The scope of the main works included:

  • The provision of scaffolding and a temporary roof
  • Re roofing the north wing and main hall roofs
  • Re-covering flat roofs
  • Repairing and replacing decayed structural roof members
  • Replacing large valley gutters
  • Removing several roof windows and replacing with automatic opening windows
  • Repairing chimneys and stonework
  • Re-creating and installing five panels of decorative friezes in the main hall
