Ecclesiastical projects – hiring the right construction partner

Church buildings form the heart of their communities, providing a location for get-togethers, support group meetings and children’s social groups, as well as worship.

Very old buildings, they often encounter difficulties and many are in need of modernisation and repair. Aztec has completed several high profile ecclesiastical construction projects in recent months including St Johns Church reordering in Ainsdale, the Grade II listed St Nicholas Church, and an extension to St Aidan’s House in the grounds of Liverpool Cathedral, providing additional conference and meeting room space for teaching and training.

At Aztec, we’re experts in both traditional and modern building methods and we understand the sensitive approach needed for heritage projects. When dealing with a challenging project, it’s important to have the right contractor on board.

What should you look for when appointing a contractor for a heritage project?

Hire a contractor with relevant and recent experience

Be sure to appoint a contractor with experience delivering heritage or church reordering and construction projects – it’s often a complicated task and appointing a construction partner like Aztec with a strong track record will save potentially expensive, time-consuming and stressful issues later down the line.

Look to appoint a construction partner with recent experience – building methods move forward all the time, so having a team on board with recent knowledge of handling similar projects will help to ensure that it meets up-to-date building standards.

Hire a construction partner with an in-house team of contractors

Church buildings and other heritage projects are often complicated from a construction perspective – to avoid delays try to appoint a contractor that employs contractors directly.

At Aztec, we have all the necessary skills in-house to deliver any construction project – this allows us to avoid delays, knock-on effects of movements to the original delivery timeline and avoid any issues with sub-contractors that are out of our control, ensuring that projects are delivered on time and on budget.

Interrogate the budget

If not carefully managed, budgets can spiral. At Aztec, we understand the importance of utilising value engineering principles, particularly with church building works, keep the budget under control.

By using Aztec’s own joinery workshop to provide furniture, fixtures and fittings for our project at St Johns, Ainsdale, we saved the church more than £20,000.

Ask for client testimonials

Don’t be afraid to ask for testimonials from recent clients – it will put your mind at rest and ensure that you appoint the right team for the job.

One of the most well-established construction firms in the North West, Aztec has a successful track record spanning 30 years – if you’re looking for a construction partner, give us a call!
