Old Stocks Inn Stow on the Wold

Full interior transformation of the Grade II listed property to provide 18 high-specification guest rooms.

Ridge was appointed to provide engineering and surveying services on this extensive listed building refurbishment project.

The project required a full condition survey of external fabric to identify where elements had failed. The findings were used to develop a fabric repair schedule that complemented the internal architectural works.

The mechanical and electrical services were upgraded and replaced to provide a high-efficiency heating system, low volume / high capacity hot water services, and new small power, lighting, fire alarm, and WiFi throughout.

The hot water and heating strategy have contributed to significant savings on gas consumption. The ambience created within the property and the improved kitchen and guest rooms has seen the occupancy and turnover rates increase, whilst running costs have decreased improving the profitability for the hotel.

The full refurbishment has also seen the delivery of 18 en-suite guest rooms, lounge and dining facilities, kitchen and patio areas, conference and meeting facilities, and an off-street deli / sandwich bar.
