Cardiff Council and its partner the Insole Court Trust, are seeking to appoint an experienced conservation contractor to undertake an extensive programme of repairs, alterations and improvements to Insole Court, a Grade 2* listed building in Llanndaff Cardiff.
Insole Court is a joint project being undertaken by a partnership between Cardiff Council and the Insole Court Trust a registered charity. The procurement process is being managed by the Cardiff City Council on behalf of the partnership.
Insole Court is an historic Grade 2* listed building in Llandaff in Cardiff. It is partly in use to provide community facilities and office accommodation for the Welsh Co-operative Association Development Agency. The upper floors of the building are largely vacant and in poor condition as are its outbuildings including the original stable block.
The Court sits in approximately 14 acres of established gardens which are accessible to the public and heavily used by the local community.
Over the past four years working together the Trust and Council have assembled a package of funding from a range of sources including the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery under its Community Asset Transfer Scheme. The funding will be used to undertake a programme of repairs and improvements to the Court to bring it back into good condition and full beneficial use for a range of purposes including extensive community and heritage visitor facilities supported by catering and retail activities and small business and commercial space for revenue generation.
The Trust has obtained the necessary statutory consents for the project in 2012.
During the contracted works programme, parts of the building will remain in occupation and use and the successful contractor will be asked to programme and sequence the works to allow the existing activities to continue and public access to the majority of the gardens maintained.
The Trust supported by the project funders wish to ensure that the conservation and development of Insole Court is an exemplar conservation project to inspire others to take on similar challenges. The Trust also wish to ensure that the conservation, construction and other training opportunities the project offers are taken maximum advantage of throughout the project and its delivery.
The Trust and Council are looking for an experienced conservation contractor with expertise and a track record in working on historic building projects of the importance of Insole Court, and who will help ensure that Insole Court becomes an exemplar project.
