This new build project was a traditionally detailed home built from scratch just outside of Bath. It was designed by John Weir Architects & Fergusson Mann Architects, and features a pool which rises up to form a dance floor, external garages, a greenhouse and various other external landscaping elements. This was one of our larger projects, with a complete construction value of around £9m.
For the past few years, we have a carried out a continuous refurbishment programme of basement properties in Bath's city centre for Curo. Located in Georgian listed buildings, these projects consisted of fully refurbishing formerly derelict basements and vaults, utilizing a combination of proprietary tanking systems and traditional lime plasters in order to keep them dry and habitable. The properties have been completed to an excellent standard, allowing them to be rented out at market rates with the proceeds then being re-invested into affordable housing.SO far we have completed a total of five basements with a view to continue working on Curo’s framework agreement. Outside of this agreement, we have also refurbished two townhouses in Bath as well as carrying out varied maintenance and repair work in Bath and the surrounding area. Since working with a large affordable housing company like Curo we have been able to prove our ability to provide a quality finish whilst working within tight financial budgets.
This ambitious project involved the redevelopment of Durslade Farm in Bruton for Hauser & Wirth, Somerset. Beginning work in April 2013, the project took 15 months and £3.5m. We redeveloped the existing farm buildings into gallery space, office space and a restaurant/bar. We also constructed newly-built gallery spaces and as well as landscaping the surrounding farm yards and meadows. Our aim was to retain as many of the original features and agricultural elements as possible, whilst also adding a contemporary feel.The project consisted of a combination of new build, restoration and refurbishment work. It also included the marrying of 16th century stone farm buildings to contemporary steel frames, and the introduction of surface water management through an attenuation pond and attenuation tank. New joinery was fitted to all buildings, new floors were laid and polished and all roofs were replaced. The original 13ft timber barn doors were replaced with fully-functional glazed doors and large 17ft precast columns were erected. The new galleries now form part of a visitor attraction which was opened in 2014 and has proved very popular, significantly exceeding anticipated visitor numbers.
