Cinderella Cricket Pavilion - Relocation/Reconstruction
The project consisted of carefully dismantling the pavilion to retain as much of the original detail as possible, the labelling process was carried out by Wolverhampton University using a 3D scanner ( similar to the method being used to reconstruct Notre Dame), following the scan various timbers were bar coded to enable reconstruction to be as accurate as possible, it can be accurate up to 3 mm. We then used a cherry picker to carefully remove the roof tiles which were stored on pallets awaiting collection, facade timbers were carefully removed and stored for collection along with large purlin and trusses timbers once removed they were all conveyed (with assistance of Keyline Worcester) to Avoncroft Museum where a team of volunteers will carefully rebuild the structure over the coming years. The brick footprint will remain on site to show where the pavilion once stood. The project attracted the interest of BBC Midlands Toady and Worcester News

The Commandery Roof Works
The project involved removing existing tiles to investigate a hollow in the centre of the main roof area, roofing timbers were found to be in good order and therefore by redistributing existing hand made tiles and mixing different thickness around evenly, eliminated the hollow that was previously apparent.
Westbury Street Community Gardens - Worcester City Council
The project involved removing existing failing retaining wall, the wall was removed and rebuilt with an enhanced foundation detail, this was a difficult project due to access arrangements, however all difficulties were overcome in a safe and collaborative manner, we like a challenge here at Joseph Woods.
