Inspired were appointed in 2017 to assist our client with the refurbishment of their Team Accommodation village at a UK Holiday providers resort in Somerset. Condition surveying works, detailed designs and a sample refurbishment were undertaken in 2017/2018, and following a period of robust review, two principal contract positions were tendered and appointed late in 2018 for a commencement in April 2019. The Village was comprised of 28 blocks of two storey accommodation originally constructed in 1972 as guest accommodation, a total of 236 units of 2-bedroom accommodation each including showering rooms, kitchens, and communal spaces were refurbished over a period of just 14 months.

Over recent weeks during the Covid-19 pandemic our Surveying & Project Management teams at inspired, have undertaken inspection of the ongoing works to determine that high levels of safety, quality, and compliance are being maintained, and to determine progress ensuring that the works are fully completed prior to social circumstances allowing the return of Guests. Snagging inspections have been completed for all interior works and all exterior façade repairs across the entire village of 28 blocks, and the projects two principal contractors have now approached Practical Completion, with only exterior landscaping and final water connections ongoing.

Inspired Partnership Ltd have provided Architectural & technical design support services, along with Contract Administration and Project Management, Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designer services throughout the project, which has been successfully delivered to an extremely high standard, largely on program, and within budget. Clients appointed Contractors were Castle Construction & Developments Ltd, and G F Holdings.
