Bolton House, Ampleforth
Bolton House at Ampleforth College was designed by Battersea Power Station Architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and was built in 1933 as a boarding house sitting to the north of the site.
LHL undertook the Design and Contract Administration of a circa £6.5m refurb and alteration project of Bolton House which was the key to unlocking other projects at Ampleforth Abbey and College.
The refurbished Bolton House has allowed relocation of the Monastic Community facilitating the refurbishment of the Monastery after which it will have further alterations to be used as accommodation for the students of Ampleforth College.
The Bolton House project although now successfully completed had its challenges along the way with the demise of the original Main Contractor mid-way through the Contract.
The design, project and client teams pulled together with the help of Moody Bros and have now achieved the original goal which was to breathe life back into this iconic building. This work has reset the timeclock for the external fabric and brought it up to modern days standards with a full new M&E installation including Biomass Boiler and new roof level glazed extensions which provide stunning views across the valley.
