Parke House

WMS were proud to be contracted to repair the portico and generally redecorate the exterior and partially decorate the interior of this impressive 17th Century building.  It was a massive undertaking to ensure we preserved the integrity of the building whilst making improvements and repairs; all whilst the site was fully operational.

Parke House near Bovey Tracey is a two storey Grade II Listed Building owned by The National Trust and houses the administrative headquarters for the Dartmoor National Park Authority. The project commenced in the summer of 2017. 

The works consisted of lime mortar repairs to the roof of Parke house.  We also removed moss and repaired the lead to ensure the roof was restored and left in good condition. 

The next phase was to repair, clean, prepare and paint the front elevation – a period colour was applied, as per discussion with the client.

The final phase was to erect internal scaffolding to clean, prepare and paint internal communal areas namely the entrance and stairwell.  All works were completed whilst the site was fully operational with WMS closely liaising with the client to ensure that any disruption was kept to an absolute minimum.

Parke House is a beautifully restored Headquarters building and WMS were proud to help facilitate its ongoing preservation

Marland School

WMS negotiated a contract with NPS/Devon County Council for a short duration project completely renovating and re-configuring an existing school site.

The internal layout of the school was completely redesigned creating 5 larger classrooms, refurbishment to the kitchen and toilet area and also brand new internal office space.

Electrical and mechanical installation was undertaken with new lighting and data points in all classrooms.

Externally, we were tasked with creating bespoke playground space where two types of exterior fencing was installed. New external lighting was also fitted around the perimeter of the building.

Full internal decoration was also undertaken with ad-hoc flooring renewal.

From concept to completion took approximately 12 weeks and the clients were pleased that WMS were able to hand over the school right at the start of the autumn term 2018

The project was time sensitive and required to meet an extremely high specification. WMS were pleased to be able to meet the high expectations of the client and the school.
