Erskine Chapel survived it all.

Vandals, mould, red stickers and a legal stoush - Erskine Chapel survived it all. Nicholas Boyack of The Post writes about the building that Heritage New Zealand describes as a 'Masterpiece of French Gothic Architecture'. The heritage restoration was guided by Adam Wild of Archifact, who said it was a significant job involving many talented craftspeople. Developer Ian Cassels said all the hard work was worth it, however, and he considered it a “milestone“ in the history of The Wellington Company. “I am delighted with it, over the moon.” As well as saving the chapel, he had built 97 apartments in a small space, in the face of stiff opposition. It was an outcome that was difficult due to opponents who wanted the college buildings saved, at all cost, he said. Read more of Boyack's article here.
