New Boarding House Opens its Doors ready for Autumn Term

A major refurbishment of one of Cheltenham’s finest Regency buildings has been
completed, ready for new boarders at the prestigious Cheltenham College.
The four‐storey villa at College Lawn, Cheltenham was previously used as office
space, but has now been refurbished room‐by‐room, to create a new girl's Boarding
House for day and full boarders at Cheltenham College. Brand new, contemporary
furniture and fittings have been installed, to create modern bedrooms, bathrooms
and communal areas.

The new house, which has opened ready for the new Autumn term, is the College’s
fifth girls’ day and boarding House ‐ in response to growing demand for quality girls’
education within a co‐educational environment.

As part of an ongoing relationship with the College, Evans Jones have project
managed the conversion of the building, from advice on the initial acquisition of the
building, the design phase and gaining planning consent, through to managing the
project through the Construction stages.

Ian Eggleton Director of Building Consultancy at Evans Jones said: “The College Lawn
buildings are quintessential Regency Villas and have given us a fantastic blank canvas
to work with, restore and enhance, to provide high quality boarding accommodation
that I’m sure the pupils, parents and staff of Cheltenham College will feel proud to
call a home from home. We have very much enjoyed the challenge of transforming
these grand old buildings”
