Conservation team awarded by Oxfordshire Preservation Trust

Estates Services projects scooped both a Plaque and a Certificate in the 2014 Oxford Preservation Trust Awards' Building Conservation category.

A Plaque was awarded for work to conserve the glass roof covering the Museum of Natural History. This project not only dealt with the cleaning and preservation of 8,500 glass tiles, the decorated timber and the ornate metal work decorating the top of the supporting pillars but finally put paid to a 150 year old leak that had plagued the Museum. 

High quality paint restoration work to its stunning decorative interior earned the Examination Schools a Certificate award.  These prestigious awards recognise outstanding work to conserve and improve Oxford’s built and natural environment.
