We were appointed to a specialist multi-disciplinary team led by DMOD Architects in 2021 to restore the roof to  St. Davids Castle in Naas. The building originally comprised of a medieval tower house which was possibly reconstructed in the 15th century from an earlier structure as part of the construction of the town walls when Naas became a Norman stronghold. Later phases of extensions to the east are likely of Georgian/18th century origin.

The works which will commence in Autumn 2021 comprise of structural repairs to masonry wall tops and roof framing as well as re-roofing of the building with salvaged and reclaimed Welsh slate.
