  • St Albans Cathedral
  • BAQUS Construction Consultancy

St Albans Cathedral, with the longest nave in Europe, is built from bricks salvaged from the Roman city of Verulamium and boasts the only Norman tower which has never collapsed!

BAQUS Construction Consultancy is very fortunate to have been their Quantity Surveyors for over thirty years, assisting with wide ranging projects such as Nave improvements, Lady Chapel refurbishment, Great Tower remodeling and many specialist conservation works.

During 2011 BAQUS Construction Consultancy assisted in the preparation of an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund which would enable the Cathedral to invest £15m in new visitor facilities and an education centre. Two new buildings would be provided, the larger one occupying the footprint of the original Dorter Range which was the Monks’ dormitory.

BAQUS' recent work at the Cathedral has been run from Oxford and benefits from the specialist knowledge of associate director David Roche who holds the RICS Post-Graduate Diploma in Conservation of the Built Environment.
