About the estate
Stemming from a hobby in arable farming, the wine estate is now a thriving business producing world-class wines, a stylish restaurant with the wow-factor, wine and gin tastings (not together of course!), guided tours, wine festivals, a deli, a craft centre and not to mention Wild Zoological Park!
Although managing director, Clive, has at times found the English climate challenging, this has not stopped the south Staffordshire estate producing some truly superb wines to be proud of. The entrepreneurs have embraced the opportunity of offering visitors a range of attractions at the site to keep visitors coming back for more.
It goes without saying, AJG couldn’t have been more excited to be part of the recent expansion of the 30-year-old Halfpenny Green Wine Estate.
The restaurant extension
With the estate’s wine tours now 5 times more popular than in the early days, and English wine in much higher demand, the move to expand the dining area was a natural progression for the entrepreneurs. After meeting to discuss the brief, AJG knew it had to provide a solution that would wow visitors, something that would attract new customers and ensure existing and faithful clientele would want to return again and again.
Natural light is a favourite solution of ours when building single storey extensions, consequently the addition of a Eurocell Skypod ticked both the high-spec and high-performance boxes we were keen to implement for Clive and Lisa. The flat roof we installed bridges the two existing annexes seen in the aerial shots and provides the perfect space for the expanded restaurant.
The drone video showcases how opening up the dining room has achieved the project objective of being able to increase covers.
Halfpenny Green Wine Estate Restaurant Extension – January 2018
MD Clive Vickers, left us with some great feedback which the team were delighted with:
“The team have been fun to work with while taking the responsibility of the project seriously. We are missing them being around. They seem to strive for perfection continuously.”
Naturally our first desire as contractors is to exceed customer expectations at every opportunity, we loved working on this particular project and are delighted to say we’ve been asked to complete further work on the estate.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the new restaurant over on our Facebook page.
