Ty Haf is a former stone barn that has been converted into a family home and our project is to build a steel framed glazed extension, conservatory and greenhouse with twisting roofs and exposed joists. It is a complex design with curves and tricky features, which make an interesting addition to the existing stone building.
Seamanship & Radar Room
Seamanship/Radar Room is the renovation of a heritage listed building in the National Trust grounds of Plas Newydd. The historic dock building, originally used for sailing storage, is of Ashland stone construction with slate roof.
Phase 1 consisted of removal of fittings to bring the building back to it’s original state along with replacement of rotten roof joists and purlins, new roof lights and reinstatement of slate roof tiles.
Phase 2 removes the old sloping concrete slab and pecking out some bedrock to allow a level slab to be poured. The wet walls will be fully tanked and lime rendered to keep the internal space dry for future use. Also included in this scheme is the Victorian Sun Lounge next to the tidal swimming pool that was converted into a Radar Room during WWII. The building is being stripped back to it’s former use as a sun lounge, with steel supports fitted to hold the floor and roof, and a new asphalt roof covering installed. This will also include some crack stitching and strap pointing to recover the damage caused by the tides over the last 100 years.
Fairways Newydd is the refurbishment of a dementia care facility in Anglesey, which includes a new feature reception, upgraded bathroom facilities, new flooring and decorating to corridors and bedrooms one of which houses a newly fitted state of the art sensory room.
