Compton Place Stables, Eastbourne – Phase Two
Conversion of Stables to Classrooms
The project brief was to create three classrooms, office space and welfare facilities within the north side of the Courtyard Stable Buildings of this historic property. Hawk worked closely with the local authority Conservation Officer to ensure all works were completed in accordance with their wishes.
The existing large timber doors to each stable archway were repaired and complimented by the installation of a new glazed screen to form each area. Externally, the roof was repaired and flint works replaced and re-pointing completed to repair damaged areas.
Internally, existing fixtures and fittings such as tethering rings and drinking bowls were retained in existing positions. The offices were fitted with a suspended timber floor over the existing sloping tiled stable floors, walls were dry lined and suspended ceilings installed with LED lighting.
Each area was complimented with air conditioning and finished with decorations and floor finishes.
