In June 2018 a huge fire destroyed large sections of the Cottesmore Hotel, Golf & Country Club, Pease Pottage affecting the health club, kitchen, function rooms, bar and golf facilities within the hotel. Following release of the building from the Fire Brigade SHW Building Consultancy were instructed to act as client liaison in relation to the insurance claim, Project Manager and Contract Administrator. The £4.5m project was split into numerous phases - Pre-Demolition, Demolition, Phase 1 and Phase 2 - broken down to enable facilities to be re-opened ready for club members and the public to utilise as quickly as possible.
Our strategy involved:
We are now in Phase 2 of the building project striving to complete new kitchen / catering facility for December 2019.
Johnny Porter, Manager for Cottesmore Hotel, Golf & Country Club said: “Unlike planned building works a fire recovery project demands a complex and involved programme involving simultaneous design, planning, building and negotiation with insurers. SHW seamlessly joined this process, led by Russell Markham, to proactively manage the project with the best interests of the recovery of the building and business in mind.”
