Historical & Ecclesiastical

The following are examples of projects we have recently completed

EDF Training Facility

EDF Training Facility

RBC worked with BDG Architects, MACE and EDF Energy on the restoration and refurbishment of Grade I, 900 year old Priory building in Somerset. Initially, this was home to a Benedictine nunnery and latterly a college. The project has created training and accommodation facilities for EDF and has included detailed restoration of the Priory building. During the recent construction work, the post-medieval main approach to Cannington Court has been revealed during an archaeological dig, along with earlier medieval buildings, water culverts and floor surfaces, the earliest of which dates to the 11th century. Pottery from the 10th to 12th centuries and a large fragment of a mill stone has also been recovered. These remains represent a significant find.

RBC worked closely with the architects and contractors to ensure the sensitive restoration and alteration work was completed in accordance with Building Regulations, and was on hand to advise the design team through each stage of the project. The project presented many interesting challenges relating to fire safety and access to the overall site, requiring professional skill and judgement in reaching solutions with the design team.


Boxgrove Priory

Boxgrove Priory

West Sussex

RBC were appointed to provide full Building Control services for the construction of a new boiler house and new ‘eco friendly’ internal flooring throughout the church. The Ty-Mawr lime floor is created using natural materials such as straw and wood and has a unique way in absorbing moisture. The ‘breathing’ qualities of the floor makes it suitable for solid wall construction buildings.
