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 Catholic Schools Offices in Maitland and Newcastle, part of which was Menkens' designed.

A significant factor in the success of this project was working with both the client and the architect from the earliest concept stages to establish what was achievable.  Cost effective practical problem solving involving all parties ensured the viability of this very important adaptive re-use of a landmark building.
