Discover DeCrypt is the project to regenerate the Church of St Mary de Crypt and the Old Crypt Schoolrooms bringing them back into full use as a place of worship, a community hub and a venue for art, culture and learning, open and accessible to all.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Croft Building and Conservation Ltd as principal contractor to carry out the 12 month programme of restoration on the Church of St Mary de Crypt and the Old Crypt Schoolroom. Croft have moved onto site and work is expected to continue until early 2019 with a projected opening date of March 2019. This is an important milestone in the life of the project which we are very excited to have reached!
Croft is one of the UK's leading building conservation specialist contractors, based in the Midlands and surrounding areas, employing over 80 craftspeople in traditional methods of construction. They are committed to running apprenticeships teaching traditional building craft skills to future generations. A number of local young people will benefit from the appointment of Croft through engagement in apprenticeships during the works, an aspect particularly important to Discover DeCrypt.
