ALMSHOUSES REFURBISHMENT

Work has commenced on the refurbishment of three almshouses and former school masters house to provide much needed local residential accommodation.

Moody Construction have been chosen to complete the sympathetic refurbishment of the listed buildings in the local village of Burneston. A partnership between local charity The Matthew Robinson Trust and Broadacres Housing Association will result in two almshouses built in 1680, along with a former schoolmasters’ house and school room, being remodelled into new, modern homes in Burneston. The architect is P+HS Architects, Identity Consult (employers’ agents) and Fairhurst (consulting and structural engineers) are also providing support.

The two existing Almshouses and old school room, which are Grade 2* listed and have been vacant for a while, will undergo an external and internal refurbishment, with a ‘light touch’ approaching being taken to sympathetically repair the fabric of the building.

This will create a ‘new’ one-bedroom property alongside the existing one and two-bedroom Almshouse properties within the Grade 2* listed buildings.

In addition, the former schoolmasters’ house will be extended from an existing two-bedroom property into a four-bedroom family home.

John Cole, Pre-Construction Manager at Moody Construction, said: “We are delighted to be part of the team to breathe life back into these historic listed buildings. With a sympathetic and sustainable restoration, the scheme will provide much needed homes in the village.”
