For each Major Repair Area (MRA – see Major Repair Programme page for more information) that the Salisbury Cathedral Stone Masons, Conservators and Glaziers work on, the schedule of work is the same;
- Mould cutting;
- Masonry banker work;
- Stone fixing;
- Masonry conservation;
- Glazing works;
- “After” photography.
Photogrammetry: This is taking a sequence of overlapping photos from a suitable distance, then applying them to a CAD (Computer Aided Design) and producing a drawing of the elevation; this is then our blank canvas to work from.
Scaffolding: This is then erected to the elevation at suitable lift (distance between the levels) heights so we can gain access.
