New Dealership, Workshop Facilities & New Heritage Centre at Aston Martin

Newport Pagnell

This project involved the removal of the existing showroom and parts of the adjoining workshops which were in a very poor condition.

Newport Pagnell has long been the centre for the rebuilding and maintenance of vintage Astons, brought there by enthusiasts from all over the world but this was being carried out under leaking roofs and badly laid out buildings.

Working closely with the Property Manager at Aston Martin we masterplanned the design and layout reconfiguration for both the new Dealership showroom and the conversion of the Olympia building to provide a Heritage centre. Main Contractor Davlyn.

Major Developments for PGL Travel Ltd

We have had a long working relationship with PGL who have many Activity Centres all over the UK & Europe. Guest accommodation at many of these centres is in urgent need of replacement; Marchants Hill in Surrey was an evacuation centre for children during World War II and Little Canada was troop accommodation prior to D Day and after that one of the very first Pontins Holiday Camps.

We have acquired detail planning permission on these difficult sites for a programme of phased building replacement using primarily timber framed construction so that deep foundations were not needed, which would cause problems on the heavily treed sites. New Staff Accommodation was added in 2014 at Marchants Hill.

Main Contractor S J Roberts


New Production Facility for Cardinal Slates

Cardinal produce replica Cotswold Stone Roof Slates; they are the market leaders & recommended by most Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire Conservation Officers. In January 2013 a major fire completely destroyed the existing facility.

We master planned the replacement building fast tracking the Planning procedure by close liaison with WODC and then co-ordinating the construction stage so that production could resume as quickly as possible. Building work will be completed during 2015.

Fire damage to original plant

New Rooms & Day Space for Care Home

Town Centre Development

Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.

A long established ironmongers has closed in this attractive Cotswold town. The existing premises are to be largely removed from the steeply sloping site but the High Street frontage Listed Building will remain & is converted into two apartments. The linear form of the 11 new dwellings reflects the 'burgage' arrangement of land parcels found in Chipping Norton

Project currently at Planning Appeal stage.
