To further improve the exterior of the St Sophia, our engineers recommended that the external floor pavement be removed throughout the exterior ground forecourt to resolve the unevenness and hazardous nature of the ground forecourt. Bricks were laid down to solve this issue, bringing new life and strength to the site. In doing so they created a stable site that is inviting from its exterior to its interior.
The church is currently in a three year phase of restoration which will now turn to the building façade, roof and ultimately internal coatings and iconography. BellMont will keep you up to date with the restoration process over the coming years.
