The Rhodes Trust, Oxford
Rhodes House – Internal Upgrade
We have been involved over a number of years in advising The Rhodes Trust on property issues relating to their occupation of Rhodes House a Grade I listed building situated in the centre of Oxford. The property demands the highest of quality standards when addressing any modification or alteration to respond to the original building fabric designed by Sir Herbert Baker. Extensive consultation and liaison with the local authority Conservation Officer is always required when proposing any alteration to the internal or external fabric of the building.
Our most recent project at Rhodes House was prompted by a desire by the Trust to re-order their internal administration arrangements. In essence a “move management” exercise, we were asked to co-ordinate a number of trades conversant with working at Rhodes House and to specify and supervise their various works.
Of particular note was the importance of gaining approval from the Conservation Officer for a specialist joinery skirting to conceal Cat 5 data cabling and power. This was achieved within an oak skirting duct specifically designed to blend in within surrounding timber wall panels.
