The Task and Our Role
Frederick Menkens was the most prominent architect in the development of the character of Newcastle heritage building stock.  It was a privilege for Lindsay Dynan to be able to utilise our heritage engineering skills in the refurbishment of the Menken's designed Catholic Schools Offices.

We worked closely with both the client and the architect from the earliest concept stages to establish what was achievable versus what was not.  Cost effective practical problem solving involving all parties ensured the viability of this very important adaptive reuse.
