Conversion of a former coach house into a high quality wedding venue.
The coach house is grade II listed and part of larger estate with a grade II listed manor house and landscaped gardens. The coach house is one of the earlier buildings on the estate and originally dates from the 1700s. The venue currently runs a marquee as a wedding venue through the summer months and the conversion of the coach house enables our client to improve their wedding offering.
CBG were commissioned to design the M&E installation which included ventilation, heating, domestic water, fire alarm, security and the lighting design. Given the remote location of the coach house back up power (generator) also had to be provided as power cuts can be more frequent and maintaining the venue during an event is imperative. Aesthetics were a very important consideration during the design to tie in with the high end image. Services routes were also a challenge to be overcome, as much of the void above the former stable area is inaccessible as it is inhabited by Bats.
