Hadlow Tower is a Grade I listed gothic tower located in Kent. The tower itself stands fifty three metres high and is the tallest surviving Victorian gothic structure in Britain. The tower has been badly affected by years of neglect and weather damage and is now in a dangerous condition.
The project restored the exterior of the tower to its former splendour and provides holiday accommodation for up to six people with wheelchair access up to the third floor. The ground floor is converted into a permanent exhibition space that showcases the historical and architectural merit of this fascinating building.
The project is funded in part by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Greenwood Projects provided advice at all stages of the application process including cash flow and drawdown procedures.
Greenwood Projects also provided project and cost management as well as CDM Advisor services on this project. Greenwoods also undertook the procurement of the design team via a formal OJEU process on behalf of the Client.
The project was stunning and recently won the RICS South Heritage Project of the Year Award, and two English Heritage Angel Awards in the categories of ‘Best Craftsmanship’ and ‘The People’s award’
The project was funded by a range of organisations as follows:
