Platt Hall Gallery of Costumes

The works to Platt Hall consisted of the adaptation of 4 No rooms to the western wing of the Hall from existing gallery spaces to provide teaching facilities.
The work undertaken to the teaching facility were contained within areas extensively altered in the past and had no impact to the historic building fabric. Works carried out to the historic areas were completed following sound conservation approach and specifically using materials and techniques which matched the original construction.
The project also included the complete re-wire of the building, the provision of disabled access to both the main gallery and separate teaching facility, the installation of a new boiler and associated vented louvers to the north elevation.
External works to Platt Hall included new ramped access to the main hall in natural stone, the repair of existing stone flags and kerbs, repair yard rear gate and create new steps to the basement with balustrade.
