Fold Court Chaddersley Corbett

Overview

A building located in Chaddersley Corbett (near Kidderminster) was in need of a total refurbishment, including a period conservatory to house a new kitchen. The building itself was a barn conversion completed in the early 1990s and dating from the late 18th century.

An architect had been engaged and Holland Contracting and Conservation were invited to a site meeting. The extent of the work agreed to enhance the character and maintain the ambiance of the property.

The works included a brief to put new life into the property and create a 21st century living space. It was a great opportunity to add insulation products and breathability to the building. We engaged traditional materials including lime mortar in all masonry repairs and renewals.

Our Services

  • historical building and structure relocation

    Historical Building Translocation& Structure Relocation

    Buildings of historical interest often come under threat from encroaching societal pressures, sometimes caused by urban regeneration, sometimes simpler commercial pressures. In these instances, translocating the building to a new site may be an ideal solution, saving the structure and affording the opportunity to restore a building to its former glory.

    Recording and cataloguing each individual brick, piece of stone, window, door and all other physical features, preserves the accuracy and historical merit of the structure.
