Cliveden Spa – another marquee project for David Salisbury Commercial
David Salisbury Commercial is very proud to share details of what is amongst the most prestigious projects the company has worked on.
Whilst the team is well used to successfully delivering marquee projects, such as the replacement sash windows and timber doors for the front façade of the Grand Brighton Hotel, the recently completed project at Cliveden Spa showcases our capabilities in a similarly grand light.
What is undoubtedly one of the most eye-catching properties in the country, and also well-known around the world, Cliveden House has had a hugely colourful history dating back to the 1600s. It is probably most famous (or infamous) for hosting the party around the outdoor swimming pool where Christine Keeler and John Profumo first met, which ultimately lead to the biggest scandal in British political history during the 1960s.
During its history, Cliveden has had many uses but is now owned by the National Trust and has been leased as a luxury hotel since 1985.
Working alongside Formation Architects, David Salisbury was the lead joinery supplier in the restoration of the Spa area. Centred around the outdoor swimming pool (the famous pool noted above), our contract involved the supply and fit of all windows and doors as well as the construction of the glazed link between the main house and the Spa.
The windows and doors had to be designed to be in-keeping with the existing buildings on-site – whilst undoubtedly this presented some difficult technical challenges, our fully bespoke design capabilities ensured that the final outcome was seamlessly manufactured. The curved windows arche replicate the design of the main property and took some detailed design work to perfect.
The ‘link’ extension was the second part of the project and provides a 30m covered walkway from the main entrance to the spa. A complete building extension, with glazed pitched roof, this took inspiration from a garden room-type design and has transformed the spa experience for its visitors.
Joe Marsh, Acting David Salisbury Commercial Manager, was the sales lead on both projects. He commented: “this is a great example of our design and manufacturing capabilities. Whatever the design challenge, we have a technical team of CAD and 3D drawing technicians ready to provide a solution and the joinery skills able to manufacture what we consider is the best quality product available on the market. Whilst it would be nice if every project was as grand as Cliveden Spa(!), one of the great features of our Commercial division is the sheer variety of projects we undertake, in terms of size and status – every client is treated the same.”
