Concrete shuttering JLP01_08_044591

COVENTRY CATHEDRAL, PRIORY STREET, COVENTRY. A view of the construction site of Coventry Cathedral, showing the erection of shutters to the baptistery windows and circular staircase, including the construction of the heavily reinforced undercroft floor slab and joiners working on the steel reinforcing, preparing a floor bay for concrete.
The photograph also shows the one foot six inch starter nib to the walls which is concreted at the same time as the floor slab. In the foreground two joiners are fixing the circular shutter which forms the circular stair well, while the parabolic shutter forms the instrument room

Carlisle Cathedral JLP01_08_075746

CARLISLE CATHEDRAL, CARLISLE, CUMBRIA. Foreman stonemason, Ted Drinkwater, working at Carlisle Cathedral checking a stone head on the north face of the cathedral. Half its face had been replaced using SBD Certite as the adhesive.
This photograph is part of a batch taken by Laing to show restoration work being carried out using SBD Certite. In 1961, N M Phillips, the architect for Carlisle Cathedral started experimenting with the bonding material SBD Certite in the restoration of the cathedral. It was used on all but one of the decorated Gothic windows of the South Clerestory and by the time this photograph was taken, it was being used in the restoration of the north face of the cathedral. By using SBD Certite, Laing stonemasons were able to remove just the weathered surface of the stonework. New stone only two inches deep could be bonded to the old stone saving more of the original fabric of the building and cutting costs by a third. The photograph was published in April 1967 in Laing's monthly newsletter Team Spirit

Laing were the civil engineers for the project with work commencing on 7th January 1957. The nuclear power station came into service in 1962 but has since been decommissioned following its closure in 1989
