What we did

This project consisted of converting an existing library into a new office space, along with a new suspended floor, lighting, carpet, and a full rewire, plus decoration. New openings were required to be formed to make way for a brand-new staircase, allowing access for creating a new lift shaft. This then enabled us to carry out the lift installation and provide disabled access to otherwise previously inaccessible or inconvenient sections of the building.

A new lobby area, storage room, and access hallways were formed within an existing large hall to create access to a new disabled toilet and changing area. These new toilets have undergone the replacement of the structural floor joists and coverings, now featuring a complete refurb and reconfigure of the existing layout, with an additional DDA access ramp.

A new museum space was created after knocking through two existing rooms to create a brand-new gallery, along with associated display units, and decorating in line with the rest of the manors’ design. Refurbishment and redecoration of sash windows to the manors south-facing elevation also assisted in revitalizing and refreshing its aesthetics.

Refurb and redecorate sash windows to refresh aesthetics to the south-facing elevation of the manor house. All parts of this project were carried out in a live building, with sensitive areas and occupants. This required us to make special considerations to the resident’s busy schedules, with planning around holidays, weddings, and other events to ensure there was as minimal disruption as possible.
