Preserving History: Renovating the Almshouses in Exeter!

Throughout the years, we've had the privilege of restoring the beautiful grade II almshouses in Exeter. Our team takes great pleasure in working on these historic buildings, and we've gained a wealth of knowledge about their background, importance, and unique significance to our local community.

The Almshouses were formed 900 years ago and are traced back to the 11th century. The Almshouses provide accommodation for people who are unable to stay in their own homes. The Exeter Homes Trust manages 143 Almshouses in 8 estates throughout the city of Exeter. The homes range from mid-war, post-war victorian and contemporary buildings.

At Fifields Construction Exeter, we have restored a vast amount of historic almshouses in the beautiful city of Exeter. Our restorations have included new mechanical and electrical services, underfloor heating, modern shower rooms, ensuite toilets and kitchens. The end refurbishment result has left the residents with modern, energy-efficient housing, upgrading the apartments, whilst retaining the distinctive character of a building with historical importance.

Our focus has been on upgrading the apartments while preserving the unique character of these historically significant buildings. The end result of our refurbishments is modern, energy-efficient housing for the residents, who can now enjoy comfortable and updated living spaces, all while appreciating the unique history and charm of their almshouses.
