GVII Listed Georgian townhouse


Private domestic

​Engineer:       Mesh Engineering




Project Description:

This high specification refurbishment project involved significant works to a Grade II listed Georgian townhouse in the heart of Wells, the cathedral city. The existing three storey building is believed to have origins in the 16th century with a series of upgrades and alterations taking place over the centuries. Our task was to provide sympathetic alteration and improvement works throughout the house to safeguard its future for modern living, whilst respecting the traditional fabric and historic detailing.


Planning and Listed Building approval was successfully achieved in early 2022, and this was followed by a comprehensive package of building works, specification and schedule of works.       


The proposed works were split into several phases and in addition to rewiring, re-plumbing and complete redecoration, included the repair and upgrade of street facing dormer windows, replacement timber roof lanterns, bespoke joinery packages, new library, works to existing fireplaces, bathroom installations, lighting schemes, and secondary glazing.


BESPOKE JOINERY The project included a significant amount of joinery items, from an octagonal new roof lantern, to a hidden jib door, floor to ceiling bookcases to two libraries, media cabinets and window replacement. All of which required detailed design, fabrication and careful coordination with the local Mendip Conservation Officer.
