St Thomas' Anglican Church

Project Type: Reinstatement of wainscoting and internal repainting

Client: St Thomas' Anglican Church

Location: 50 Hay St, Port Macquarie

The project was to seek funding under the Australian Government's Your Community Heritage Grant programme 2011-2013 to continue conservation works to the State listed St Thomas' Anglican Church.

The adoption of a Conservation Management Plan (CMP) in 1999, prepared by Suters Architects, provided the instrument for the Parish Council to begin the process, in 2003, of the long term conservation of the church addressing structural and major maintenance issues while correcting prior ill-informed repair works that were contributing to fabric deterioration.

With the completion of the interior rendering conservation work meant that the restoration of the cedar wainscoting could be carried out thereby completing the last of the major conservation works components identified in the CMP.
