We are pleased to announce our appointment as project manager and quantity surveyors on the restoration of  Jacobs Wells Baths in Bristol.

Funded by Historic England, this grant will allow us to undertake emergency repairs to the Grade II Listed building. The works aim to prevent further deterioration of the external fabric of the building. This includes the roofs, gutters and downpipes and high-level masonry, in preparation for a phased repair scheme to begin later in the year. The funding will also support surveys of the high-level stonework to inform the main repairs.

Historic England recently visited to inspect the works. You can read about this over on Trinity Community Arts website. They’ve released this short video which gives a glimpse of the unused pump room:

The vision for Jacobs Wells is to develop and deliver a £4m regeneration scheme. Trinity Community Arts vision is for the redevelopment to be in keeping with the buildings dance heritage. We hope this will see the centre reopening as a vibrant community arts hub that will include much-needed youth provision and services.

Burke Hunter Adams are pleased to be part of the project team which include Corinne Fitzpatrick, conservation Architect and Sean Redmond of PH3 Design.

Support is still needed to secure the future of the space. If you would like to support, head over to the Fundsurfer and give what you can and help revive this wonderful building.
