The Semaphore Tower
We were appointed by the Landmark Trust to fully refurbish one of the country’s most iconic buildings. The Grade II* Listed Semaphore Tower, is the only remaining structure of its kind in Britain and has been fully restored and converted for holiday letting, comprising a kitchen, living room and four bedrooms over 7 floors. On top of the tower, you can enjoy epic 360-degree views of the Surrey countryside.
External refurbishment of the tower included repointing of brickwork; overhauling of rainwater goods and soil pipes; refurbishment of chimneys, including lining of flues; replacement of roof coverings; repairs to lower roof coverings; replacement of rotten joinery; overhauling of windows, shutters, and external doors; secondary glazing to windows; stripping out of redundant fixtures and fittings; and redecoration externally.
Internal works comprised re-planning of spaces to form a new kitchen, shower room, bathrooms and storage spaces; refurbishing staircases and timber floors; upgrading internal doors and walls to the staircase area to improve fire protection; and redecoration of ceilings, walls, doors, and windows.
