Rockfish, Exeter

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

The Ocean Building, Lampard School

In 2021, Fifields were awarded a project at the Lampard Community School, Barnstaple to undertake ‘Phase A’ comprising the internal refurbishment of the existing school and the replacement of the existing roof overlay.

Following the successful completion of ‘Phase A’ Fifields were able to negotiate the following Phases (B & C) which commenced in January 2022.

The Phase B works comprised the construction of a new build two-storey accommodation block, with associated hard landscaping and the relocation of the soft play area and sensory trail. The new build is comprised of a brickwork superstructure with new roof coverings, windcatchers and an external staircase to the flat roof.

The Phase C works comprised the conversion of the existing changing rooms into a single medical room. Alteration works to the music store were completed, creating a new entrance to the new extension. Additional works also included the conversion of the existing drama room into a new Library/ICT area.

The works were completed both in term and out of term time. The school is catered to children aged 5-16 with complex needs. Working in sensitive areas such as schools requires extensive planning and preparation to ensure that the requirements of the building are fully accommodated and understood. The additional vulnerability of the children at the school required Fifields to undertake this project with extensive care and consideration.

Through the efforts of our site team and the close co-ordination of all those involved, we were able to deliver this extensive project in a safe and effective manner, delivering a high quality finish. The staff and pupils of the school were pleasant and helpful throughout the contract phase and we hope that the local community benefits from this fantastic project we were honoured to be involved with.

Materials used for the project included new cedar boarding with render and multi-coloured Trespa panels complementing the external facade

Localised external works including landscaping and reinstatements to the areas of the demolished classroom were also delivered.

The project was completed both in and out of term time, requiring Fifields Construction to operate a fully functioning site during regular school hours without disrupting the day to day
operations of the school.

This was carried out successfully through effective site co-ordination, impeccable health and safety and a well organised and highly communicative project team.
