Cusworth Hall Redevelopment

Cusworth Hall Redevelopment

Specialised Movers successfully returned antiquities to Cusworth Hall that had been in storage for Doncaster Museum Services.

Specialised Movers were used because the previous removal contractor had failed to comply to the high standards of instruction and had breached the time motion carrying system that the client had implemented for the series of moves.

Cusworth Hall is a Grade 1 Edwardian Stately Home that after years of neglect received a significant lottery aid grant and with help from the National Trust, underwent major surgery to reclaim its former elegance.

Pre Move Planning:

A structured induction was organised with the client in which Specialised Movers shared information and evaluated the scope of works.

Scope of Works:

Specialised Movers fitted full site protection at the newly refurbished Cusworth Hall. All stairwells, walkways and lift apertures were protected.

Working to specifically designed and agreed moving techniques for this project, Specialised Movers worked in constant co-operation with the Museum. At all times the consignments were marshalled, with all transportation recorded/logged and security tracked.

Specialised Movers lifting division were also employed to move all the display cabinets from secure store. These units were top heavy and also delicate building bespoke crates for the glass panels and moved using our lorry-mounted crane.

After placement of the glass display cabinets, fragile glassware and cosmetic jewellery was placed into these cabinets by Specialised Movers operatives.

Specialised Movers have since on numerous occasions revisited Cusworth Hall to offer porterage and removal services.
