Borley is a small village on the border of the counties of Essex and Suffolk. Borley Church is Grade I listed. The church comprises a 16th Century south porch, 11th Century nave, 14th Century chancel and a 15th Century crenellated west tower. Purcell was appointed to carry out urgent repair works.
Purcell was appointed as Architect and Project Manager for a 29-bedroom facility for wounded, injured and sick service personnel and their families in Colchester. The ground-breaking project was a joint venture between the MOD, who provided the land and staff, Help for Heroes, who provided the capital funding and the Royal British Legion, who will fund the project’s running costs for the first 10 years.
Purcell carried out the Condition Survey associated with the 1999 Conservation Plan and also the 2016 Condition Survey associated with the English Heritage grant aid to identify necessary repairs to protect the fabric of the Fort against further decay.
Purcell was commissioned by OMC Investments to reconstruct the Grade I listed Cupola House, in the centre of Bury St Edmunds’ historic market area, following a devastating fire which destroyed all but the basement, main façade and small areas of the ground, first and second floors.
