Principal Contractor Delivery Construction Excellence in the South West
Fifields Construction are a professional construction company with offices in Exeter and Taunton, giving us convenient access to major routes and links across the South West of England.
In the summer of 2018, Fifields Construction delivered a purpose built restaurant for Rockfish, an established chain of seafood restaurants based in Devon. The restaurant is sited on the prestigious Exeter Quay, and is a fantastic addition to an already beautiful area.
The project was comprised of the construction of a single storey steel frame glass pavilion, with a stone central section that rises through the restaurant area and out of the roof.
Works included structural steel work, brickwork, carpentry, roofing, ventilation and mechanical and electrical services into the building.
The works were carried out in a highly populated area with heavy foot traffic throughout, requiring the highest standards of health and safety and effective co-operation with the surrounding tenants.
Multiple local businesses operating in the adjacent buildings were kept in operation throughout the construction phase, with Fifields Construction ensuring that no negative impact was received to their day to day operations during the construction phase.
The project was delivered in conjunction with surveyors W.T. Hills Ltd
Atwill Palmer Almshouses
The Salcombe Company Ltd
The project involved the upgrade and restoration of 24 Grade II listed 19th century Almshouse flats, with new two-storey extensions added to the rear of the building.
The works comprised the demolition of the flat roofed 1960’s one storey additions at the rear, replacing them with energy efficient two-floor extensions, with pitched roofs. Extensive groundworks were undertaken to supply new incoming services with external remodelling and new landscaped terraces and gardens.
The new rear extensions are comprised of steel beams fixed to external blockwork, with double pitched roofs and mono pitched roofs to the ground floor extensions.
Internally, the works included refurbishment to the existing buildings, new rendering to the extensions with glazing, floor finishes and decorations throughout. New mechanical and electrical services have been provided with underfloor heating, modern shower rooms, ensuite toilets and kitchens.
The end result has left the residents with modern, energy efficient housing, upgrading the apartments, whilst retaining the distinctive character of a building with historical importance.
In 2018, Fifields Construction undertook a large-scale refurbishment and upgrade project at the Salcombe apartments.
The works comprised the refurbishment of the interior building including new plastering, decorations, fire stopping works, fire
rated doorsets, as well as new mechanical and electrical installations and alterations.
A fully encompassing scaffold was constructed around the entire perimeter of the building to enable the external works to be carried out. External works comprised new bespoke balcony rails, guttering and the painting of the building.
New waterproof decking was also installed.

HEAR FROM OUR CLIENTS
Thank you Fifields for delivering our lovely new offices on the ground floor of Northcote House. This project was something that I have been wanting to do for some time and I think the finished build has surpassed my own original expectations.
It was imperative for me and my team that the work was delivered on time and to budget so that we could move back in ready for the start of the new term. This was achieved by your team whilst also delivering the work to a high standard. I always felt the project was well controlled and well managed and that you were flexible and pragmatic to move things around when necessary to accommodate our requirements.
The classrooms look fantastic, and we are all really excited about moving into them. Fifields were really easy to work with and have done a great job.

I found Fifields very professional. The site manager was very knowledgeable in virtually all aspects of construction and above all very helpful. It was a pleasure to work with you on this project.
