Residential Construction | Doncaster

Project Large Image 510 x 3301st Small Image 300 x 2502nd Small Image 300 x 250

The Project

Pacy and Wheatley Residential Construction scope of works was to sub-divide the grade II listed building into two individual and luxury dwellings. The properties were to be re-named the “Brew House” and “Laundry House” to create a time capsule of the history of the
building’s former use.

Works included the full restoration and remodelling of the building including renovation of sash windows, full M&E installations, render repairs, replacement of feature windows, all to the highest standards and of a vernacular and historic style

The Challenge

Working on a rural and extremely constrained site with a high security risk due to its isolated location.

Sensitive renewal of mechanical and electrical services throughout the historic building and envelope.

Preservation of existing renders, reinstatement stone floors above newly installed under floor heating.

Formation of a bespoke spiral staircase over three floors built within a replica traditional beer vat to portray the former brewery.

The Solution

Careful selection of sub contractors to ensure the highest standards were achieved.

In the absence of any project architect, fortnightly meetings with the client and contract administrators were essential. Pacy and Wheatley Construction's Design and Build expertise assisted to provide the client and client’s agent with quick and cost effective solutions as issues arose.

Liaison and excellent relationships with the Brodsworth Estate staff were of highest priority.

Key Achievements

Project completed within a 19 week tight program.

Highest standards achieved.

97% waste removed from site was recovered for recycling.

Health & safety: zero reportable accidents on site.

Achieving the clients budget.

Pre completion sound insulation testing achieved a high score of 56db.

Project was “Highly Commended” by LABC in the 2012 building excellence awards.
