COMMERCIAL BUILD | BABINGTON HOUSE, FROME

Babington House is a grade II listed country house hotel and private members country club in Babington nr Frome, Somerset.

We have enjoyed the pleasure of working for Babington House for the past 3 years and the work is ongoing. We understand the pressures of keeping the guests happy and appreciate that certain jobs need to be completed within tight schedules. We undertook building a 6 bedroom and bathroom extension within the grounds of the hotel and we completed the job within 6 weeks. 

We have many skilled workmen and they are all on hand for the commercial projects we undertake, from decorators, carpenters, tilers and plumbers. We have been involved in the refurbishment all of the below stairs rooms, including The Deli bar. We were also involved in the decoration of all the main house bedrooms.

THE CHALLENGE

Under a very tight schedule we were given the opportunity to refurbish specific areas of the hotel, making sure we did not cause disturbance to the paying guests and guaranteeing delivery of each aspect within their required timeframes.

We needed to compose and present visualisations of the works for each section of the works, and work alongside their London based design team to make sure all the bespoke furniture and uncommon fittings were ordered with plenty of time to spare. We had to maintain a very low-key presence on site, and confidentiality was a priority for the team at Soho House.

THE SOLUTION

Speed, efficiency, and subtlety were absolute during the period of works at Babington House. We had to work around the clock to maximise the output, ensuring the quieter trades worked during the evenings so as not to disturb the guests, and our larger team of tradesmen worked closely with each other to ensure a smooth flow of work during the day.

All the deadlines were met during our works at Babington, and to achieve this required a level of dedication from our staff which we are continually proud of. This dedication has taken us forward to successfully complete several areas of rejuvenation around the hotel and grounds, including a 5 bedroom extension and complete refurbishment undertaken in a 6 week period.
