ISG land second phase of £21m Kent scheme

ISG has been appointed by retirement developer Audley Court Ltd to start a £5.1 million contract for the next phase of building work at its Mote House retirement village in Bearsted, Kent.

The £5.1 million contract follows an earlier £16 million phase, which saw ISG build a high specification retirement village around grade II* listed Mote House, a derelict, country residence that is situated within 450 acres of parkland in Mote Park.

The second stage of the development will focus on the internal transformation of Mote House itself, the external renovation having taken place in the earlier phase.  

Once completed, Mote House will be home to twelve high specification apartments across two upper floors, a restaurant, bar/bistro and library. The existing basement will also be reconfigured, where ISG will develop offices, treatment rooms and a gym, together with an additional two apartments. 

Underground access to a subterranean swimming pool, which the contractor will build adjacent to the house, will also be created. The pool will feature a domed concrete roof, which will be grassed over. 

The project also encompasses the fit out of ten existing two bedroom cottages in the Walled Garden, which will complete later this year, whilst renovations of the listed building will complete in summer 2012.
