An away day at Lord Leycester Hospital!

Published: 26th July 2022

Last month, several members of the Messenger team headed to Lord Leycester Hospital to deliver a series of traditional workshops for Donald Insall Associates away day. There’s only one rule for their away days – the venue has to be one of their current or past projects, and fortunately LLH was the chosen one! The sessions encouraged the team to get hands-on with everything from Collyweston slating, timber-oak framing and joining, to lime plastering!

It was great to see how every one of their employees got stuck in with turning their hand to the traditional building techniques that many of our team use on a daily basis. Having the opportunity to help deepen their understanding of these crafts was a privilege and we’re thankful to have been able to work alongside them on this, and many more projects to come.
