Private Estate House

Typical of many buildings in the Chester area, this Grade II listed building was designed by the renowned architect John Douglas who was responsible for designing many of the buildings that give Chester its unique character. Strictly speaking this is composite construction combining timber and masonry elements, surveying this type of building requires careful analysis to establish which timber elements are structural and which are decorative only. NPA were engaged by the estate management company to undertake a condition survey of the structural and non-structural timber framing.
