Project Information

Winner of the Southern Counties Public Sector award in the 2021 National Master Builder of the Year Awards

We were privileged to be awarded the contract for a major programme of structural alterations and refurbishments to Clifford Hall, The Beulah Centre and Beulah Baptist Church. The client’s objective was to completely transform a poorly designed 1970’s link building between an old church hall and the main Victorian Chapel into a spacious, bright and most importantly accessible to all multipurpose building.
This was a complex job that required a great deal of planning and careful scheduling of works to allow parts of the building to be retained in active use by the client. Major structural alterations to multiple parts of the building were made to improve the layout and allow addition of new facilities including modern toilet and most importantly a new passenger lift to the first floor. An enlarged and redesigned new commercial kitchen was also installed as part of the works.

Reference from our client

I have been working with Ben and Joe since 2018 (in 3 separate phases) as the Project Manager on the refurbishment of a 1970s church administration block, toilets, kitchen, adjoining Victorian church hall, sanctuary and construction of a lift shaft. Due to the various historic construction methods that were previously employed numerous unforeseen problems were encountered. During these problems and at all times Ben and Joe have shown the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. The standard of their work has been exemplary, the lift installation company fitters commenting that it was the best lift shaft they had worked on.
The first major problem was the imminent collapse of a substantial Victorian internal wall (which could not have been foreseen) and that could have had catastrophic repercussions. The second being the discovery of floor joists that were failing despite having been previously repaired by others. The collapse of the floor could have resulted in critical damage to new boilers that had previously been installed below. Ben and Joe reacted to both situations with extreme professionalism and with constant communication with myself. They came up with both cost effective and safe solutions that were implemented.
The standard of work and the finished results has given the church modern facilities that are light, spacious and welcoming.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben and Joe (Mitchells Construction) for your building project.
