Chelmsford Garden Room with Shower

Project Details

The challenge of this project in Chelmsford, Essex was to replace a very dilapidated barn which was adjoined to a larger barn building with a new building but still maintaining the link. The design brief also included a fully fitted out and tiled shower room.

Challenges and Solutions

Before we could start work on site we were asked by the client to confirm that we could make the roofs of the existing building and new building join successfully and seamlessly. Our CAD engineer was able to use all of the information and dimensions taken from our site survey and produce a CAD drawing proving that our new building height would work with the existing building and maintain the headroom needed for door opening between the rooms. A pumped drainage solution allowed for the inclusion of the shower room as the new building was below the level where a gravity system could operate.


This was the first project where we were asked to join one of our buildings to an existing building and several more have since followed. With care given at the design stage, we were able to give the client the reassurance they wanted and to prove by CAD that we could make it work. The project was very much a turn key one as we handled everything from the demolition and removal of the old building to handing over a fully finished and decorated room and shower room. We were even able to perfectly match the black cladding on the larger adjoining barn building.
