General Works made better

What We Do: General Works. Formal House

A Challenging, Busy, Cheltenham Site

A New Life For a Historic Warehouse Complex

Formal House is an historic warehouse complex in the Cheltenham business quarter and is home to several businesses including restaurants and shops.  Its retro style has also made it a hub for Cheltenham's key media companies.  These businesses have remained trading while Barnwood General Works undertakes a 48 week construction of a four storey Atrium within the existing constrained courtyard.

Works have included stripping out, excavating down within the existing courtyard to basement level, designing and installing a pumped drainage system to serve the basement area, forming new offices in the basement area, installing a new glass curtain walling to form the new four storey Atrium, joinery roofing, fit out & M&E.

Day to day site safety management ensures that:

 The site team is strongly supported by back office personnel, and Barnwood General Works has a great reputation for the whole team pulling together to ensure that the sites work safely and professionally deliver quality products to its customers.
