Warfield Hall, Bracknell Forest
Warfield Hall is a Grade II Listed Building located in its own extensive parkland nearby the historic settlement of Warfield in Bracknell Forest. A large, early nineteenth century country house famous for its appearance in the film The Eagle has Landed, the property is likely to have eighteenth century origins and has been much altered over the later nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Some changes have resulted in issues of general repair, extending to structural integrity. In conjunction with Stonewest and Richard Griffiths Architects, Urbanissta configured, negotiated and oversaw the Listed Building Consent process, seeking to undertake a strictly conservation-led scheme of repair, refurbishment and alteration. This comprised external render repair and redecoration across the building envelope; extensive structural repair; the installation of new French drains; and, the appropriate replacement or repair of rainwater goods. In addition, the scheme sought to install CCTV to improve security for the building and approach, whilst installing lighting across both the building envelope and carriage drive to improve general amenity and health & safety, whilst assisting with security. Listed Building Consent was granted in November 2014.
