Christ Church Downend was constructed in 1836 and is a Grade II listed church. The refurbishment works included removal of pews and levelling of floors throughout with a new breathable floor comprising recycled glass fibre insulation and a limecrete underfloor heated screed. The new limestone floor creates a superb aesthetic complimented by new LED lighting throughout and new sound and vision technology.
The church project has reached a successful conclusion and is now light, bright, warm and accessible to all with planning permission for future extensions to create an improved South Entrance and the Grace Room. A church fit now for the 21st century.
“We continue to be delighted with the way the building is working and never fails to evoke a ‘wow’ factor response. It is fast becoming a top choice venue for concerts in the Bristol area and a place where children and families love to come for all kinds of activities and events. Thank you again for all that you an the team did to make this possible.” Jonathan Vickery, Vicar.
