The Knoll, Cleethorpes

Students from the Conservation BA, Grad Dip, and MA programmes began work at The Knoll in Cleethorpes this month.

Lincoln Conservation, working with in partnership with ENGIE and colleagues in Conservation, have set up a 3-year programme of works, which will run for one week each academic year. The project involves bringing students on site, to give them experience in wallpaper and tile conservation, and Architectural Paint Research. Students also gain practical knowledge involved in site-based work, such as; interacting with the client and the public, health and safety and best working practice.

This year, students undertook condition surveys, cleaning trials, and removal of paint samples, and learnt how these initial processes go towards informing how costs and methods statements for commercial conservation work are put together.
