St Mary’s Church, Gressenhall

Very pleased with the outcome,”it looks lovely”

Fr Ross

It has been almost two decades since condition reports on All Saints highlighted the need to carry out repairs to the historic dome at the centre of the church building. Among the challenges, given its inaccessibility, was that we didn’t fully comprehend the scale of the works required until scaffold was erected, from floor to ceiling, and we could get up close to the fabric. It was with no small amount of trepidation that we embarked on a scheme of works that, potentially, could hit the roof, so to speak!

Nevertheless, we have been immensely fortunate. When we engaged C.E.L Group (1989) Ltd they came with a respected name and a track record of high-quality work. What they have accomplished here can only enhance their reputation. The challenge of working and conserving a Grade 1 listed building, while a busy and active worshipping community continued around them, was effortlessly executed. Their versatility in working with our architect to adapt the scheme of works as new surveys became possible and as redecoration took place, has made a highly significant impact on the result. Moreover, we thoroughly enjoyed working with Phil, Paul and their highly professional team of builders and conservators. We were rather sorry when the project wrapped and the time came to wave them good-bye.

We are as delighted with the finished works as we are with the journey toward completing them. We very much hope to engage them again as we continue to care for one of Northampton’s most iconic buildings.

Father Oliver Coss, All Saints Church, Northampton

We were so pleased that CEL group 1989 ltd worked with us to repair our Church roof. From the start they were professional, reliable, and hard working. Their tender for the work was very competitive and the quality of the finished work is excellent with great attention to detail.
There were a couple of unexpected challenges thrown up by the state of the roof, but the team worked tirelessly to ensure that we were able to hold our Easter Services in the church building and a wedding in the week after Easter. Thank you from us to all the team at CEL group 1989 ltd.

CEL Group (1989) Ltd did a great job of installing a new zinc roof & in particular helping us manage our way through the variations that arose in the early stages of the work. The works were completed on time and the Church was cleaned ready for us to use once again.
