The work to re-construct a road that provides access to the rear of Hengrave Hall was commissioned by M&D Developments Ltd, a company specialising in property maintenance. Having once been made out of stone, the road would be mainly used by wedding parties to gain access to the hall. The time scale given to construct the road was two weeks, with a budget of £250,000. The most challenging part of the construction was to achieve a high quality of workmanship, in keeping with the building and surrounding grounds.
M&D Developments approached us with this project as we had worked on a number of projects with them before, each of which we had successfully completed within the time scale and budget. As the wedding season was approaching, it was important for us to work efficiently to ensure the road was completed within the timescale.
