Condition survey of large vaulted ceiling

Mitchell Library, Glasgow
2007
Glasgow City Council

100 years old, 100' long x 30' wide, 50' high. A condition survey was required on all 81 panels of leaded glass accessed in the attic above the main reading room.

Condition Survey, Mitchell Library.

The attic was accessed through a tiny door behind a cleaner's sink. Conditions inside were like working inside a filthy, precarious, upturned sauna, made of glass.

Health & safety, health & safety, health & safety. The Fire Brigade were just a phone call away - just incase.
