St Saviour’s Cathedral was designed in 1874 by architect Edmund Blacket, and is of cultural significance to NSW, the Diocese of Goulburn, the history of the site and the history of Goulburn. MFA (Michael Fox Architects) were engaged in 2012 as heritage architects for the conservation management of the Cathedral.
MFA heritage program commenced with preparation of Conservation and Asset Management Plans. Resultant initial conservation priorities included resolving rising and falling damp, roof ornaments including finials and crosses, parapets and the Great East Window settlement and movement.
The air drains and Great East Window programs were part funded by NSW government heritage grants and careful cost management enables the conservation program to proceed. Future program components include the Cathedral floor, internal fixtures and fittings, roof works, sound, lighting and Cathedral Spire.
