Project Description

Hornby Cottage is a listed building which underwent external re-roofing (two new roofs and patch repair) alongside conservation remedial works. Internal structural alterations were undertaken along with an internal refurbishment and associated M&E works. The site had limited access as it is in a pedestrianised area of central Stratford-Upon-Avon and was only accessible at certain times of day. Supplier access was difficult, as was material access – which was only permitted at certain times of the day. All this required managing by the onsite team. The gift shop was open from 9am, so access to the shop couldn’t be impeded in any way. Shaylor’s site team contended with maintaining the smooth running of the shop whilst it welcomed over 2,500 people per day, being the gift shop for the busy Shakespeare’s Birthplace Trust.
