Bourne Leisure tasks BAM with major restoration of Grade II listed Studley Castle
Studley / Hemel Hempstead, 26 May 2017 - Bourne Leisure Hotels has appointed a contractor for the works on Grade II* listed Studley Castle in Warwickshire. The leisure giant has chosen BAM Construction in the Midlands to refurbish and restore what will become the 14th hotel in the Bourne Holidays group, which includes renowned holiday brands Butlin’s, Haven and Warner.
BAM has commenced early works on the £35.5 million refurbishment and restoration scheme for the Grade II* listed 1830s country house. It will be linked via a new bedroom block and cabaret space extension to the existing stable block. The new hotel incorporates extensive leisure and cabaret facilities as well as historic rooms in the main house.
Jon Kiteley, BAM’s Construction Manager said:
‘Our team has been working closely with Bourne Leisure and its consultants to develop the design and construction strategy to deliver this landmark project. We now have the opportunity to deliver the redevelopment which will see the rejuvenation of this important local landmark, allowing its story to continue towards, and beyond, it’s 200th anniversary.’
BAM in the Midlands is known for ability to deliver a range of buildings including complex schemes, being at work on a substantial new care home in Wood Norton, Worcester, and the £100 million Three Snowhill development in Birmingham. It recently remodelled the BarclayCard Arena, among many other schemes across the Midlands.
Studley Castle will be open to guests during the winter of 2018.
