John Francis Bassett, Camborne


JD Wetherspoon Plc.





Structural alterations and refurbishment to a listed historic building to form a new public house within the heart of Camborne, originally constructed in 1866 as the town’s Market House.  

A complicated grillage of steelwork was required to fully realise the proposed architectural layout whilst maintaining the stability of the structure.

The rapid timescale typical of such works required the production of a preliminary structural scheme, updated upon completion of the stripping out works and subsequent inspection by DTA personnel.  The unexpected outcomes of such inspections foster a close working relationship with the design team and the Contractor, as revisions are inevitable to suit the discovery of previously unknown structural elements.

The renovations at Camborne are representative of the many and varied refurbishments carried out by DTA on behalf of JD Wetherspoon Plc. to date.
