Ogilvie undertook the construction of the extension to the existing Norton House Hotel and Brasserie for Hand Picked Hotels. The works required the sensitive consideration to and restoration of the Grade B Listed section of existing building where adjoining the new extension.
The external works comprising a feature pool, terraced gardens, car parks and soft landscaped areas; including careful downtaking & re-building sections of existing listed garden stone walls.
The new build bedroom extension to the existing hotel provided new high quality bedrooms (31nr), duplex suites (6nr), executive suite (1nr) and penthouse suite (1nr). The new build leisure & conference complex provided the hotel with meeting room facilities, bars, a 20metre pool, health spa and kitchen areas.
The proximity of the works to the existing listed hotel section of the building necessitated and received careful programming/sequencing to minimise disruption to the client’s ongoing business operations. The new build leisure complex was constructed up to 4 metres below ground level and adjacent to an existing listed boundary wall which had to be retained, requiring extensive temporary support.
