New Year, New Opportunities

As we prepare for celebrations to welcome in the New Year, time to reflect on the achievements of the past year, our first full year in new premises and some exciting projects under our belt!

Happy New Year to all our clients and wishing you a prosperous 2024!

Competed project at Trull

We are pleased to share recent photos of completed contemporary metal clad 2-storey extension to an existing Grade II Listed barn conversion, providing additional living accommodation and alfresco dining experience on the first floor terrace (perfect for those summer BBQ’s!).
The original barn dating back to the late 18th century was used for cattle on the ground floor and storage upstairs, and was converted in circa 2004.
The extension design is sympathetic to its context and suitably subservient to the existing buildings.
The palette of external materials of corrugated metal panels for the walls and roof, together with natural wood door and windows, were chosen in collaboration with the council’s Heritage Officer to reflect the agricultural nature of the existing buildings.
The selected materials both complement and contrast with those of the main barn, in an appropriate and modest manner.

Gillingham site crossing the first finish line!

Wonderful to be working alongside Chris Winter of Cherwyn Developments again at this lovely little site in Gillingham, deal agreed with the vendor and hopefully progressing with the planning application shortly!

Phase 1 nearing completion on Tangier flats

Great to be working with Sourced Capital on this exciting development in Taunton, converting redundant office to space to apartments.

Phase 1 consisted of 55 flats over 4 floors is nearing completion, with Phase 2 a further 17 flats due to commence in November.

Kings Hall School Roof Repairs

Working alongside Wrencon Ltd on King’s Hall School in Taunton over the summer alongside to repair the roof of the main building, reusing as many of the slates as possible, repairing the chimneys with a colour matched mortar and giving the roof a new lease of life for the next hundred years.
 
It was a difficult project, it didn’t stop raining until the day we took the scaffold was struck! This project was delivered within the school holiday period, on time and in budget.
 
Better photos to follow (and maybe some drone footage!) but here are a few that were taken on the last day.
