Royal Fort House, University of Bristol Grade I listed building

This beautiful house built in 1762 for the Tyndall family, which was subsequently used as a student's union in 1920s before being occupied by the American forces during WW II, required sensitive refurbishment.

Careful repairs were carried out to the structure and fabric of the whole building. The means of escape routes were upgraded and remodeled. New heating, lighting and fire prevention systems were installed throughout the building with minimal disturbances to the historic fabric.

The principal rooms required sensitive removal of 1970's lighting and decoration schemes together with repairs to the oak floor boards, stone tiles and timber carvings.

The removal of built in radiator housings from a bay window and the re boarding of the original blanked windows, which had been opened up in the 1940's, led to the reinstatement of two rooms as originally designed. Full architectural services were provided including project management of site works, the appointment of specialist sub contractors and liaising with English Heritage.
