Refurbished boarding house reopens

We have completed an extensive refurbishment and extension of a Grade II listed boarding house at Shrewsbury School.

Rigg’s Hall has a new lease of life with improved facilities and layout, all carefully crafted around its historic fabric in our latest project to be finished at the independent school.

We have now moved onto our 12th project at the school – building a new £5.1m girls’ house that will be named in honour of the Queen.

Queen Elizabeth Hall – or Queens as it will be known – will house new facilities for day and boarding pupils including student and staff accommodation, a house hall, kitchen and TV room.

Other significant projects we have carried out at the school include the academic building Hodgson Hall, the Chatri Design Centre and the extension and refurbishment of the Barnes Theatre.

Managing Director Steven Owen said: “The renovation and extension of Riggs Hall has given the school a vastly improved facility for its students. Delivering a project to modern design and construction standards with a Grade II listed framework was a challenge but this was one that our team rose to.

“We are now looking forward to delivering the next exciting chapter in the evolution of the school with the building of its fifth girls’ house. Groundworks have already begun and we should be finished on site next summer.”
