Described locally as the jewel in the crown of Doncaster, Cusworth Hall is a Grade I listed three-storey country house that was originally constructed 1740-45 by Architect George Platt for William Wrightson. The main hall is currently maintained by Doncaster Council and used as a museum, archive, and offices for operations staff. The neighbouring Stable Block and Bothy is a two storey Grade II listed property that is used as Groundskeeping stores, teaching facilities and public toilet block.
Arcus were initially appointed to inspect and advise on specific defects to the West Wing of the Main Hall, the Gate House and the below ground drainage system. Following issue of this defect report, Arcus were subsequently instructed to undertake a wider condition survey and provide high-level budget costing relating to significant issues within the Main Hall and the neighbouring Bothy and Stable Block. The reports and budget costing are to be used for a funding application to restore and maintain the property with a view to developing the estate for greater commercial use.
