Barrington Park, Grade I Listed, was built for Lord Chancellor Talbot in 1734 to replace an earlier Jacobean house on the same site. The building had deteriorated significantly, and a temporary roof and extensive scaffolding was erected, particularly to protect the extensive ornate plaster. Planning and listed building permission was granted to demolish all the later extensions and to completely re-order the interior, close to the original Georgian layout, but this was later abandoned in favour of repairing and reusing the 1875 extensions.
ByrneLooby, through Sinclair Johnston & Partners, advised on all structural work, demolitions, alterations and detailed structural repairs to the complex roofs and detailed new floor framings, stairs, lift and service ducts. A new fully accessible reinforced concrete service culvert was constructed along the north elevation, with a boiler room and extensive fuel stove concealed behind the existing walls of the court yard. We also advised on outbuildings and historic features in the surrounding park.
