Magdalen Road Almshouses

Demolition, remodelling and refurbishment of the Grade II listed Almshouses

Fifields Construction are known for their versatility and their ability to operate across a multitude of sectors within the construction industry. In 2015, we were instructed to undertake a large-scale refurbishment and remodelling scheme at the historic Magdalen Road Almshouses.

The works were split into separate phases, with the first phase comprising the demolition of the existing four ground floor
extensions. Internal refurbishments of the eight ground floor flats were completed, which included new secondary
double glazing, mechanical & electrical services, kitchens and bathrooms.

Internal and external decorations were completed
including new floor finishes throughout the building.

Additional works included an element of external lime mortar re-pointing and rear garden landscaping works.

The second phase was negotiated and comprised the conversion and remodelling from eight into five first floor flats, providing two-bedroom flats with larger living areas.

The project was completed for the Exeter Homes Trust.
