  • Latest project for Winchester College
  • Boarding House refurbishment
  • Phased work in occupied 65-bed boarding house.
Hall & Ensom have once again been commissioned to provide building surveying and design co-ordination services for the refurbishments of another boarding house at Winchester College. Morsheads House accommodates 65 boys in a mix of shared and private bedrooms and studies. The project is the latest in a phased programme of refurbishment and upgrading of the college boarding houses to meet the highest standards in the sector.

Hall & Ensom are designing the alteration and refitting works, and will monitor work on site through to completion in late 2014. The work includes the introduction of complex new electrical, data, fire alarm and plumbing services throughout the four-storey building and we are overseeing and co-ordinating the design and installation of these services. The house will be operational and fully occupied throughout the phased work on site.

This will be the fifth boarding house we have worked on at the college, and the third major refurbishment project. Over our fifteen-year relationship with the college, we have also extended and refurbished a number of staff houses and sports facilities, and undertaken a maintenance survey of all teaching buildings.
