Sacrewell Farm is an English Tourist Board, Quality Assured visitor attraction providing activities throughout the year. With significant experience in heritage projects and helping to secure funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Clarkson Alliance was chosen to oversee the £1.8 million project delivery and cost management.

The scope of the project included construction restoration works to create a new bespoke educational facility, accommodation for residential training courses and includes extensive conservation of walls, roofs, floors etc. and restoration refurbishment of the mechanics of the water mill machinery as well as the installation of a hydro-electric scheme, fire and intruder systems.

Oxford Castle, Oxford         With significant experience in the heritage sector and a proven track record of Heritage Lottery Fund applications, Clarkson Alliance was the perfect choice when the Oxford Preservation Trust embarked upon an ambitious project to restore Grade I listed buildings and scheduled ancient monuments dating back to the 11th century. The objective was to create a new heritage centre for the city called Oxford Castle Unlocked which would house a new visitor’s centre, education, centre, shop and café and would give the public access to parts of the site for the first time in a millennium. The centre would open up access to the site which included prison buildings and would tell the history of law and prison reform in Oxford over the last 1000 years as well as preserving the buildings for the next generation. The project was not without its risks and complexities and involved extensive collaboration between a diverse set of stakeholders including multi funding agencies, conservation groups and officers from various county councils as well as developers, contractors, design team and attraction operator. Clarkson Alliance’s experience with managing heritage projects, identifying areas of potential risk and providing solutions ahead of the problem was exemplified in its use of NEC for this project, focusing on the client’s objectives and making collaboration easier and more effective. The project was delivered in time for a visit from HRH Her Majesty The Queen and has subsequently been heralded a huge success, being held up by the Heritage Lottery Fund as an example of the benefits that its work and funding can deliver.
