The project involved redesigning the existing layout to provide acceptable living accommodation for the proposed eight residents. The overall design had to change in the first instance due to budgetary constraints that needed to be managed. The property had stood vacant for several years before works began. Therefore existing services needed to be tested prior to commencement, to ascertain if systems were still capable of serving the building.  Works included re configuration of the ground floor layout to provide several bedrooms and a larger kitchen/dining area, upgrading of existing heating system along with full refurbishment of the internal and external elements of the property.
