St Peter’s Church, Hextable

Fit out of the new Annex, St Peter’s Church, Hextable.

Completed March 2022

PCC of St Peter’s of Hextable and St Pauls of Swanley

Theobald’s were approached to quote for these works in Early 2021. The shell of the new extension had been completed several years prior to us starting on site by another contractor and following another round of fundraising and obtaining grants, the PCC awarded the contract to Theobald’s in July 2021. The new annex purpose was to create a new open plan spaces for community use, a new cafe and new WCs and kitchen area.

The works included the full fit out of the entire newly built annex including new plasterboard finishes to all walls, newly formed vaulted ceiling in plasterboard to the first floor areas and MF ceilings to ground floor areas, underfloor heating throughout with new floor screed, new floor finishes, full redecoration, fit out of new toilets including IPS, cubicles, vanity units and new sanitaryware. Full electrical installation throughout annex including power, lighting, data, new containment and distribution boards. New plumbing installations to the WCs, kitchen and café front of house area, new specialist ventilation within the café and ventilation to the Kitchen and WCs. The project also include an extensive externals package, transforming the former disused land around the church into a new accessible access into the cafe, paving throughout with retaining walls. The new landscape also included a full planting scheme across throughout and resurfacing of the existing car park.

The project also required new service installations to the building, which was coordinated throughout the contract and installed prior to handover.

Due to this project being partly community funded, the PCC had a strict budget to maintain. This project was completed in time ready for the open date and within budget.
