This project won a Green Apple Award for the built environment. Part of the Le Cateau Barracks in Colchester and bought by our client Lexden Restorations with intentions of restoration, Yates totally restored the Sergeants’ Mess into five stunning apartments.
Having suffered years of neglect, this fine building had been severely affected by a dry rot outbreak which had seen most of the internal woodwork destroyed. Much of the internal plasterwork had also been removed to prevent the spread of the dry rot fungus.
We began work by taking the building back to its shell and then put in underfloor heating before installing impressive ALNO kitchens and transforming the rest of the interior.
