DPP’s work at the Grade II Bowcliffe Hall delivered the client’s wish to provide innovative and high quality contemporary conferencing facilities in a historical setting. DPP demonstrated that the proposed works would not be harmful to the significance of the building and its context. Through establishing good working relationships from scheme inception the application was determined within 8 weeks, thus delivering the clients commercial aspirations and objectives.
“DPP lead and managed the development team from start to finish and secured an innovative and wonderful new development which merges the history of the hall with the needs of commerce to provide additional accommodation in the Green Belt and I would not hesitate to use them again.”
