White House Farm, Hartlepool

Our award winning restoration at Whitehouse FarmMajor refurbishment and rebuilding of a group of farm buildings within a conservation area to form affordable homes for the elderly.

This project was won at tender and followed on from earlier work we had completed for this client. The original project consisted of the refurbishment of a derelict farmhouse and associated outbuildings that occupy a prominent position in the historic village of Greatham. The buildings are within the Greatham Conservation Area and the project won both National and local awards for the quality of the refurbishment.

The Objective

Our client, The Hospital of God at Greatham, acquired a group of derelict farm buildings with the intension of converting them into accommodation for the elderly.

During a detailed survey of the main building prior to starting work, we noticed signs of severe subsidence and after further investigation it was decided that demolition was the only safe option.

C622-Whitehouse-02Working with the client and the professional team, we helped to develop a solution that retained the front elevation of the main building as well as the original outbuildings, so satisfying the planning authority’s requirement for minimal intervention, while delivering the number and size of units required by the client to maximise funding through the HCA.

The Solution

Once planning approval was given, demolition proceeded according to plan and the revised project was completed in accordance with the revised contract programme and at a contract sum of £360,000.
