The contract was completed at the end of April 1998 at a total cost of £550,000 including fitting out with bespoke exhibition display units.

LANWADES HALL

ANIMAL HEALTH TRUST, LANWADESPARK

NEWMARKET, SUFFOLK

Lanwades Hall is a Grade II listed building originally constructed around 1907.  The mansion house has been sympathetically refurbished to a high standard of finish with careful attention to detail to provide accommodation for the directorate, administration and finance offices and one of the best veterinary science libraries in Europe.

Conference and catering facilities for meetings and training seminars together with staff common rooms are provided at ground floor level.

 

The building contractor was appointed at an early stage to assist in the investigative works and contribute to buildability to avoid unpleasant surprises and unforeseen costs occurring at a later date.
