Another Diverse Quantity Surveying Project in the Bathurst area for Walton Smith Consultants

Posted by on

Standing in the heart of Bathurst is the Catholic Cathedral of St Michael and St John. The Cathedral was built in 1865 to the design of an English architect, and has watched over the extensive Catholic Diocese of Bathurst for almost 150 years.  2015 is the Bicentenary of the Cathedral and the Catholic Diocese.

This building has recently been placed on the NSW State Heritage Register in recognition of its wider significance, and with the help of the Bathurst community the Cathedral Restoration Appeal has now started to restore this historic building to its original glory.


Christo Aitken, the conservation architect for the restoration, who is based in Bathurst and the Blue Mountains, contacted Walton Smith Consultants and invited us to be engaged as Quantity surveyors to advise the Catholic Diocese and the Restoration Committee on the cost of the restoration together with a range of longer-term master plan options. 


Walton-Smith Consultants are proud to say that we were selected as the Quantity Surveyors for the restoration of this beautiful Cathedral. Walton-Smith Consultants will be providing Quantity Surveying and Cost Planning services, which will help the Diocese and the restoration committee to prepare financially for the restoration of the Cathedral of St Michael and St John.  The vision recently articulated by the Diocese for the future of the building and its community is ‘Restore, Rebuild, Renew’…and Walton-Smith Consultants will be there every step of the way!
