    St Maries Cathedral

    Ventrolla has successfully completed a £19,000 renovation project at St Marie’s cathedral in Sheffield.

    “We are incredibly pleased with the quick and effective service that Ventrolla provided, especially when dealing with this delicate specification. The overall project took only one month to complete.”



    Sixty windows were renovated and restored at the cathedral house, home to a number of offices and the current Dean, Father Christopher Posluszny.

    Ventrolla’s South Yorkshire office was recommended by the cathedral’s property manager after being told by the council’s conservation office that the windows could not be replaced, but instead needed to be restored.

    Problems arose after years of re-painting had sealed the sash windows shut. Ventrolla was able to restore the sashes and interior window furniture to their former glory.

    Marie O’Hara, administrator at St Marie’s, said: “Initially we wanted to replace the windows, however after speaking to the council we were informed that they needed to be restored because of being in a Grade II listed conservation area."

    One of the key features in the cathedral house is its stunning bay window which is home to an original stained glass window dating back to 1903.

    “We are incredibly pleased with the quick and effective service that Ventrolla provided, especially when dealing with this delicate specification. The overall project took only one month to complete.”

    The construction of St Marie was originally completed in 1850, although it did not earn cathedral status until 1980 following the creation of the Hallam diocese.
