Grade 2 listed building upgrades 04

Atwill Palmer Almshouses

Refurbishment and re-modelling of 24 Almshouse apartments

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.
