Client: Alscot Estate /Status: Complete /Completed: 2016
The Bell at Alderminster, part of the Alscot Estate, has recently undergone a build project to provide a brand new two storey restaurant. The acclaimed Inn offers all-day bar and dining across two floors, with outside seating overlooking the sprawling riverside meadow & Stour Valley, as well as luxury guestrooms.
The steel framed structure, with grey aluminum fascia and render façade, stands proud and impressive, yet neat, between the existing brick construction. Inside, the restaurant has large open spaces with a full height atrium and floor to ceiling glass panels and windows.
The extension took just 14 weeks to complete, a tall order for construction specialists Cotswold Oak and a risky venture for the Alscot Pub Company itself. In order to keep the schedule on track, and due to long lead in times for the main, and most costly, components of the building, the steel and glass was ordered and made to size from plan.
