Portland Villas Phase 2 Update



Following the completion of the extensive roofing replacement project at Plymouth University’s Portland Villas, internal refurbishment and upgrade works are continuing to progress at pace. Set to provide senior university staff with high quality office space and communal areas, the TEC team are working tirelessly to regenerate the Grade II listed structure.

Respecting and preserving its listed status has been crucial to the success of the project, while also ensuring the buildings are structurally sound and safe for occupancy. Seamlessly connecting the old with the new, Portland Villas is set to provide all the amenities expected within a modern working environment, with the integration of standout historic features creating inspiring spaces; each with their own unique identity.

By working alongside expert craftspeople, including those at FH Crocker, we have also been busy restoring the ornate plaster details featured in the buildings. From the striking ceiling roses, to the intricate covings and hallway arches, each structure presents exciting new challenges, with these unique features being expertly and sensitively brought back to life.

Various TEC trades are currently working onsite, from carpenters and plasterers, to decorators and electricians, with almost every part of the structures being upgraded or restored. With works taking place across Portland Villas as part of staged phases – both internally and externally – our teams are making outstanding progress.

As just one of a number of recent projects for our long-term client, Plymouth University, we have over three decades of experience within the education sector; providing innovative and high-quality construction solutions for a range of projects across the region. Our expertise also ensures we are perfectly placed to protect, preserve and enhance historic spaces, and by working closely with conservationists, architects and custodians, we have played a significant role in bringing historic buildings back into use for the benefit of the community and our clients.
