Golfers at Old Thorns Manor Hotel, near Liphook in Hampshire, will have watched a major steel structure emerging from the ground in recent months.

This 51 2- and 3-bedroom apartment block represents not only the largest and most complex example of BS Steels’s work in the hospitality and leisure sector, but also a prime example of BS Steels’s principal contractor services reaching well beyond the design and provision of steelwork.

BS Steels’s partnership approach has been very much in evidence, as we have worked for the owners, and with Roger Hill Architects.

We reported on the first major phase of the project back in March 2015; this included 3D modelling and design, and provision of structural steel and installation services for construction of the wedding chapel, a new 500-seater ballroom, with upstairs reception area and function room.

BS Steels was then invited to work on the design and construction of a new 51-apartment block. Design, creation and assembly of the steel superstructure alone represented a major project – see the 3D design below. But BS Steels has also delivered seamless project management on behalf of the client, from design of substructure and superstructure, coordination of all trades, internal setting out, engineering etc.

Are you looking for an alternative, collaborative approach to your build project? We can add significant value to almost any project. To discuss your needs, please call Roger Slade on 07802 265438, or E-mail.

The gallery below shows various stages of the design and construction process, plus some earlier images of the 3D design for the ballroom, and the completed ballroom.
