The Grange

The Grange is a Grade II listed building in Petersfield, Hampshire, believed to be one of 2 original stable blocks for a grand house. Long neglected and in serious decline, it was comprehensively restored and given a new lease of life as a doctors’ surgery in 2002, in conjunction with an adjacent retail development. Saunders Partnership were appointed to take the project from initial survey to completion, in two stages with a total contract value of £1.2M.
Initially the existing building was made structurally sound and weatherproof, which required specialist repair or reconstruction of almost every building element. The floors and stairs were particularly badly decayed and extensive stonework repairs were needed to the external walls. All this work was undertaken in close co-operation with the Local Authority’s conservation officer to ensure that historically important features were preserved and that the repairs and reconstruction carried out were an authentic replica of the original construction.
Once a tenant had been found, Saunders Partnership set about carefully fitting-out the restored building envelope as state-of-the-art premises for a local GP’s practice and a sports physiotherapist. This required considerable skill and flexibility on the part of the whole design team to meet the stringent current standards for medical practitioners’ premises, whilst remaining sensitive to the historical importance of the building.
