Frome is about to get its very own Town Hall.

February 15, 2017

We were delighted to see the handover of our latest renovation project last week.  The 1891 building had latterly been used as Social Services offices and was bought by Frome Town Council to create a new Town Hall with a range of facilities for the community as well as traditional council functions.

Frome Town Council is currently made up entirely of independent councillors with no party affiliation and our brief was to create a modern democratic building which would be welcoming to all members of the public.

The facilities include serviced offices, meeting and consultation rooms, the restored council chamber and a café.

We look forward to seeing the Town Hall in action following its formal opening in April.

Official Opening of the Memorial Hall in Llandaff

January 26, 2017

The new Memorial Hall at The Cathedral School, Llandaff was officially opened earlier this month by the Most Revd Dr Barry Morgan, Archbishop of Wales and Bishop of Llandaff.

The building replaces a post-war hall and provides the infants school with a multipurpose space for dining, PE and learning as well as a space for community use. It is a complex site within the Llandaff conservation area, working around existing trees, managing complex changes in levels whilst maximising the available space for the school both inside and out, including an extension to the nursery play area. This follows over eight years of development that NVB have seen through from master plan to completion.

Passivhaus Standard Residential Development

November 2, 2016

NVB have submitted a planning application for a small housing scheme on a steeply sloping infill site close to a town centre.

The scheme has been carefully designed to minimise the impact of development on a publicly accessible meadow which has high amenity value close to the town centre. Visual studies demonstrated that the building would not impact the existing skyline.

The buildings are designed to the highest possible Passivhaus standards with IFC walling, triple glazing, heat recovery systems, and a large array of PV cells for each unit.

October 24, 2016

The renewed outdoor play area for the reception classes at Warmley Park School is nearing completion. The rubber play surface and synthetic grass add much-needed colour. A canopy, sensory play equipment, low level play features and bamboo planting are intended to create a safe and stimulation space for the pupils, who have a range of learning and physical difficulties.

Official Opening of Dauntsey’s School Pavilion and Teaching Block

October 6, 2016

This Friday, 7th October, Dauntsey’s School are formally opening their new sports pavilion and teaching block. The two separate projects have run onsite consecutively over the last 2 years. Both buildings are now in use by the school and have been enhanced by NVB Landscape’s input including a re-designed landscape quad in the heart of the campus that reconnects the new teaching block, Awdry Sports Hall and Memorial Hall. The dining hall has also received an update with a new brise soleil and pedestrian link bridge.

We look forward to celebrating with the school tomorrow.
