Macallan Penfold is proud to have worked on several projects for Treloar’s School and College over the years. Treloar’s provides education to young people with disabilities.
In 2017, HRH The Countess of Wessex GCVO visited Treloar’s School and College to officially open the newly renovated Gauvain House. Built in the 1960s, when the profile of students was very different, both Evans and Gauvain were no longer fit for purpose to accommodate students with more complex and, often, multiple disabilities.
Gauvain House was a 1960s building which was extensively redeveloped and reconfigured to provide 13 en-suite bedrooms with shared common room and dining room facilities on the ground floor. The first floor provides a further 5 en-suite bedrooms with a large shared common room and kitchen. Both floors are fitted with hoists to enable transfer of the students from wheelchairs to bed, shower or a more comfortable chair.
Evans House has been extensively reconfigured and refurbished into 6 independence flats and 14 en-suite rooms. The accommodation provides College students with the space to gain essential skills and experience to enable them to make a successful transition when they leave Treloar’s.
Both buildings can support their residents to enjoy the best possible quality of life and to learn key independence skills. Construction work for the two projects is in the region of £3 million.
