Henrietta House Radisson Hotel, Bath

A challenging and extensive refurbishment of this Grade I listed Georgian Bath townhouse hotel involved a close collaboration with the contractor, client, architect, and listed building officer to ensure the demanding client brief for updating the hotel to meet all the needs of an urban hotel in the twenty first century could be achieved whilst ensuring the preservation and ongoing protection of the existing historic fabric.

Engineering interventions included inserting a new 5-storey lift shaft frame into the centre of the existing building, supporting the new structure on a new foundation through the existing vaults below, without penetrating through the fabric of the historic stone vault!

Working within the limitations of the fragile historic structure, strengthening works were specified which would enable the long span and open plan spaces to be achieved following the principles of pragmatic, sensitive conservation.

Giraffe Engineering provided a full structural and below ground drainage design service from scheme design through to practical completion on site.
