University of Oxford, Oxfordshire
Barr Build were privileged to act as principal contractor for the renovation of Jesus College’s dining hall. Intricate specialist renovation and refurbishment works were carried out by the team, alongside trusted specialist sub-contractors.
The Jesus College dining hall has been said to be among the most impressive of all the Oxford college halls, with its fine panelling, austere ceiling, and its notable paintings.
The hall has the highest Grade I designation; a listing given only to buildings of exceptional interest. As such the Barr Build team were immensely proud to be awarded principal contractor status for the renovation works. Working under the guidance of Savills Oxford Architectural Design, they were entrusted to plan, specify and oversee the project, appointing Swan Farm Studios and Cliveden Conservation to undertake specialist artisan restoration works, the project was a true meeting of minds, passions and complementary skillsets.
“We are pleased to have delivered the repairs and refurbishment of the hall’s dining room on time and within budget. It was a true team effort, enabling us to provide the high standard of work, as expected by our client.”
