St Comgall’s Parish Church is a historic building constructed in 1889. Following its destruction by a fire 25 years ago, the building has undergone a phased restoration programme. During the final phase, 54 individual waterjet-cut pieces were fitted together within each section of the aisle to create an ornate Celtic weave.
Armatile has a reputation for working on heritage projects. It has now delivered over 150 in the past decade, including 10 during 2019. With a sympathetic approach to restoration its team expertly interprets design needs and translates each client’s creative vision into reality. This project is a great example of how Armatile works in partnership with all project stakeholders, including the architect, builder and users to deliver a tailored surface solution that not only met but exceeded the clients brief for this Heritage Restoration Project.
The completely refitted floor delivers the client’s vision and the bespoke waterjet cut decorative panels take visitors on a journey through the spiritual life and missionary work of St Comgall through Ireland, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
It is an example of how Armatile’s entire team utilises its vast experience and knowledge in the heritage sector, and works with all the key stakeholders in the industry to help clients restore the integrity of beautiful, historic buildings for present and future generations to enjoy.
