Quinquennial Inspection & Report

We undertake quinquennial inspections on Church of England Churches for the Birmingham Diocese.





St Mary the Virgin, Temple Balsall:


Following Quinquennial Inspection and issue of the report carried out by the practice, urgent repairs were required to the tracery of the rose window. 


Religious Buildings

As part of our built environment, religious buildings of all types and age need to be provided, maintained, and sometimes adapted or extended.


Below are a few examples of the type of work members of the practice are able to carry out in this important area.


Linton Harrison is this practice's Architect registered by The Birmingham Diocesan Office to carry out Quinquennial Inspections and Reports.

Feasibility sketches followed by drawings prepared to apply for a  Faculty for the proposed internal alterations and provide seating flexibility, an up-grade of the heating, and lighting and repairs to the damp proof course.



New Mosque Community Hall & Religious School



For this exciting inner city project, we took the approved planning drawings prepared by others, and developed the scheme creating Building Regulation and construction information, working closely with the Religious Elders. The fully developed scheme was then handed on to Design & Build Contractors. Work is currently on site.
