Andrew Arrol has life-long experience of historic building repair and conservation work and has been involved with many demanding projects with Grade I, Grade II* and Scheduled Monument Status. He has worked on buildings of many different periods, styles and construction methods and is particularly conversant with the conservation of medieval masonry structures. Andrew is Surveyor to the Fabric for York Minster where he is currently undertaking a £20 million project involving large-scale repair of the Minster’s east end and a major reorganisation of visitor and worshipper facilities. As Cathedral Architect at Chester, he has designed and built a large new extension to the cathedral, constructed above medieval cloisters to form a Song School and music library for the cathedral.
Andrew is thoroughly familiar with archaeological principles, procedures and with recording and surveying processes including in-depth quinquennial inspections and reports and the preparation of conservation plans. He is an active member of many of the professional associations and amenity societies that concern themselves with the philosophy and developing technology of good repair and practice.
