Last year B & E Boys were delighted to be awarded a £2 million project to construct a two-storey extension for the Church of Latter Day Saints Temple site Chorley. The work involved extending the Stake Centre, including the basement area, while retaining existing structures and completing complex instruction work.
The site covers a total of 15 acres and the striking olympia white granite exterior has ensured the church has become an iconic local landmark. The extensive facilities of the church include stake centre, missionary training centre, patron housing facility and temple missionary accommodation. The grounds surrounding the church are meticulous and feature flower gardens, reflection pools and many mature trees.
B & E Boys understood the sensitive nature of the work at Chorley Stake Centre and worked hard to ensure we adhered to all exacting standards and met planning guidelines. Our highly trained staff had the opportunity to put their expertise into practice using underpinning techniques to produce a tanked basement and upper floor accommodation as well as installing a specialist zinc roof. The basement and foundation walls were reinforced with concrete whilst a lift shaft was also installed.
We are pleased to announce that B & E Boys were able to deliver the project both on time and on budget. The team working on the project were truly first class including the workforce from Studio Severn Architects, Glovers Projects Services Limited and Chmiel Overton.
During this project, B & E Boys had the opportunity to utilise our specialist skills in traditional renovation and restoration during this project, which was technically challenging with significant temporary works to support the existing Stake Centre Building whilst new basement foundations were cast alongside it. The structure comprised of in situ concrete retaining structure and lift shaft, specialist taking systems, steel frame, precast floor beams, underfloor heating, highly decorative finishes, and the creation of extensive landscaping and wildlife habitat
When B & E Boys was founded, back in 1961, the main focus of the company was to offer exemplary joinery skills. However, over the last fifty years our business has adapted to industry needs and we now offer a range of services including the construction of new houses and schools. We work within both the private and public sector. We also have a large property portfolio and offer both residential and commercial leases including modern self-contained warehouses at the Cuba Industrial Estate, Ramsbottom.
