Hospitalfield Arts Arbroath

Refurbishment & Restoration of 19th Century Fernery and Historic Building

CHAP were contracted to carry out an extension and refurbishment to an existing area of the historic Hospitalfield House in Arbroath.

Works to restore the Hosptialfield House grounds and Fernery included:

  • Extensive renovation and regeneration of the grounds and gardens restoring them to their former beauty
  • Construction of new kitchen and Café area located by the 19th Century Fernery
  • Restoration of the Fernery itself incorporating the 19th century building into the newly formed Café
  • Full re-landscaping of gardens and orchard after the completion of major building works

The full works posed a complex challenge maintaining the character of both the buildings and grounds whilst modernising the new visitor areas. Over the 72 week construction period CHAP worked alongside the Design team to ensure the project was delivered on time and to budget.
