CField Construction has commenced works on the conversion of Bodmin Jail, which closed in 1927, into a Luxury Boutique Hotel, with a destination Restaurant and Spa.
The Grade II-listed building conversion will be particularly challenging with walls up to one metre thick and nine species of bat having colonised the ruins. Old cells will be knocked through to create spacious, luxurious accommodation. The completed project will include many modern architectural interventions such as glazed lift shaft and glazed roof.
“I cannot speak highly enough of CField’s performance. Works to complete a development left unfinished by others were carried out at high quality, on time and on budget. Would not hesitate to work with you again”Brian Curtin - Hogan Associates, Architecture & Urban Design
“CField were a pleasure to deal with on site. Given that it was a live site and the administrative offices continued to function throughout the project period, disruption was minimised and management of movement of staff to different locations within the building during the project was facilitated efficiently. Any issues or concerns raised were dealt with positively in a timely manner and the project was completed without delays.”Una Carroll - Assistant Principal Officer, Cork Education & Training Board
