Works consisted of the total refurbishment of the upper three floors of listed Edgar House in Bath, whilst the ground floor remained occupied.
The existing property was divided up into cellular office space so considerable structural works were undertaken to allow for the eight apartments to be created.
With an eye on retaining original features such as cornicing and ceiling roses, the careful construction of the apartments was undertaken in a fashion which respected the existing building.
With tight access, limited space for storage and occupied office space on the ground floor, we are exceptionally pleased that the project was delivered on time, within budget and to an extremely high quality.
Other areas of work were related to façade and roof repairs and the re-routing of existing drainage.
This high profile scheme was completed in 20 weeks and involved full scaffolding and sheeting, roof replacement, building fabric upgrades, internal alterations and structural repairs.
The objective was to restore and repair the dilapidated elements of the buildings and to provide a 10 year warranty for the properties.
The scheme was phased to ensure that sales and marketing of the properties were able to proceed as early as possible.
We utilised our in-house skills and ability with the engagement and management of specialists to deliver a high quality, cost effective project.
We were praised for our good neighbourliness and the considerate way in which we planned and completed the works.
The project included the installation of an efficient underfloor heating system and upgrading the insulation to the entire building.
The extension was integrated with the existing roof line and fenestration, sympathetic decorations and repairs were also made to the Grade II listed Church
The extension contains English Oak windows and doors which were designed to maximise light within the church space. This includes a stunning arched beacon doorway between the worship area and community area.
The project included the resurfacing of the car park and drive ways as well as the formation of new entrance through existing curved boundary walls.
This fast track project was a mixture of new build and refurbishment works that were combined to provide an extended and refreshed facility.
The scope of works included re-roofing the existing structure, reconfiguration of internal walls, a 3 storey masonry extension, new windows and doors and external stone cleaning.
The end result has provided new shower and changing facilities, communal spaces used for dining and events with the provision of new cooking facilities.
New formed balconies have also been manufactured and erected to replicate original features of the building and to ensure it is used to its maximum potential.
This challenging project completed within the high profile Wills Memorial Building consisted of the sensitive refurbishment, upgrade and refresh of its libraries and entrance foyers.
The scope of works included structural openings which were subsequently dressed with natural stone; bespoke joinery and French Polishing with the inclusion of feature bronze work; sensitive stone cleaning and repairs. All of which were completed inline with the expectations of the conservation officer.
Finishing and material had to be in keeping with the buildings original intent and in some instance this required sourcing materials far and wide such as the cork flooring and natural stone.
M&E systems were fully replaced with considerable effort taken to ensure the modern system install remained visually in keeping with the fabric of the building.
This challenging project consisted of forming a new steel frame and blockwork lift shaft which was clad in high quality zinc materials. The new passenger lift has been required within the Museum for some time to improve its visitor experience and general function.
Other aspects of the project included the refurbishment of numerous gallery spaces, the creation of staff areas and sensitive refurbishment of various WCs and other core areas.
Access to the building has been a particular challenge throughout the programme as has completing the work whilst the museum remained live.
The quality of the end result is something the professional team is extremely proud of and building end users extremely grateful for.
This fast track project saw us take vacant possession of the shell and core of the building. We installed new mechanical and electrical systems, high quality floor finishes, complex ceilings and acoustic rated walls as the entertainment area contained audio visual installations. The café space included a high specification commercial kitchen and hygienic wall finishes. The upper floor has movable partitions and vinyl flooring. It also boasts walnut veneered joinery and door sets.
Works also included the construction of a new education and teaching space.
The building had been empty for a number of years and had become dilapidated with a significant amount of decay to the fabric and roof. We completed a substantial quantity of internal demolitions, roof repairs, external stone clean and masonry repairs, replacement of windows and installation of new secondary glazing.
Internally a new steel ribbed deck mezzanine floor was constructed which houses plant rooms and equipment. We also retrofitted a supporting steel frame to dissipate loading and support the upper floors. Internally the building has oak engineered flooring, ceiling raft supported mechanical, electrical and acoustic ceiling mounted panels. The lower suite includes moveable acoustic partitions and high quality bathroom and toilet facilities.
