Biscoe Wilson Architects have been assisting St Augustine’s Church at Hamilton with general masterplanning and maintenance of existing facilities over since the mid 1990’s. We are encouraging development of external northern and south west sections of the site for a community gathering area and carpark, respectively.
Robert Biscoe of Biscoe Wilson Architects is Chair of the Physical Environment Committee for the church.
In 2006, Biscoe Wilson Architects were successful in gaining a grant from the Commonwealth Government for installation of a 100,000 litre underground “Atlantis” water tank to assist with irrigation of the grounds.
The proposed Gathering Area will provide sympathetic landscaped space on the north of the handsome brick church for gatherings by the congregation and local community. The centenary of the church will be in 2019.
Our practice is preparing a 3D CAD model of the building to assist in ongoing facilities management and maintenance of this heritage building.
Other works on the St Augustine’s church include:
- Installation of wrought iron balustrades (Ironfist Wrought Iron);
- Refurbishment of the Columbarium
- Altar platform reconfiguration and carpet replacement in the main church;
- Assistance with ongoing compliance issues in the Church, Hall, Rectory and Grounds;
- Design of commemorative bronze plaques for the stained glass windows.
- New East stained glas window project 2014
We also organised for the magnificent stained glass windows, designed by William Bustard, to be photographed by Aperture Photography. This will help preserve our local history.
