Wells-next-the-Sea Housing Development
Homes for Wells
A Squared Architects
This locally important project involved the conversion of an old school building into affordable residential units, aimed at meeting housing needs for the people of Wells.
The employer, a registered charity, selected Pentaco Construction Ltd following a single stage competitive tender process.
The brick and flint building, a grade II listed property, had been a state of disuse for several years before its acquisition by the Homes for Wells Group, so to breathe new life into the building made it a particularly rewarding project to be involved in.
The scheme included thermal and structural enhancing of the building fabric, new floors with underfloor heating, complete internal furnishes, new kitchens, doors and timber sash windows.
The works were carried out under a JCT standard form of contract with contractor's design, which included the provision of mechanical and electrical services by Pentaco Construction Ltd.
