James – Bar Convent General Manager

This project was undertaken for The Bar Convent York in conjunction with LHL Group and compliments earlier work carried out last year. The Bar Convent is a major tourist destination in York, established in 1686 the Convent is England’s oldest and is a Grade I listed building. A highly prestigious project the works involved the refurbishment of a number of the Convents hotel rooms to a high standard matching refurbishment work carried out last year. The refurbishment work involved the provision of en-suite facilities into the rooms, complete modernisation of services and complete redecoration.

The provision of the en-suites into the rooms was a particularly challenging, as a Grade I listed building any alteration to the outside appearance was unacceptable, as such all drainage needed to be taken through the building and discreetly hidden, this was made difficult by the difference of levels within the building. However this work was completed with minimal disruption to the residents and staff through careful planning and imaginative design.

“LHL Group Ltd was pleased to appoint Cooper & Westgate Co Ltd on behalf of the client as preferred main contractor to carry out refurbishment work at York’s prestigious Bar Convent. As anticipated, the level of work was to the highest standard and finished with great precision and attention to detail. After the quality of the work, the single most important element was that the project was delivered on budget, something that I am pleased to confirm was achieved. We look forward to working with Cooper and Westgate Co Ltd on future projects and would not hesitate to recommend their services to others”.
