Firm started early works on £35.5m refurbishment and restoration scheme

Bourne Leisure Hotels has appointed BAM Construction to conduct works on Studley Castle in Warwickshire.

BAM has commenced early works on the £35.5m refurbishment and restoration scheme for the Grade II*-listed 1830s country house, which once completed will become the leisure group’s 14th hotel.

It will be linked via a new bedroom block and cabaret space extension to the existing stable block. The new hotel will incorporate 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.”

Studley Castle will be open to guests during the winter of 2018.
