Shropshire activity centre makes room for more guests
Morris Property has completed a £720,000 project to deliver additional guest accommodation at a residential activity centre near Shrewsbury.
The new two-storey building at Condover Hall, which is owned and operated by JCA Adventure, will provide dormitory rooms for 72 pupils and eight teachers, to meet increasing demand.
Some 30,000 people a year, many of them primary school groups, enjoy a range of outdoor activities there, from canoeing to climbing, abseiling to archery. The centre is popular for sports tournaments and for community groups and families looking for a different kind of short break. Indoor facilities include a pool and a cinema room.
Centre Manager Richard Williams said: “We needed more space to accommodate guests and to give us more flexibility, especially at busy weekends. We chose Morris Property because it is a local, long established Shrewsbury firm and we’re delighted with their work. The new accommodation looks great.
“The Morris guys have been excellent on site; the whole process went very smoothly.”
Condover Hall already offered 560 beds before the expansion. The new building, which is clad with stained larch timber, was designed to be in keeping with the Hall’s grand setting.
Morris Property Contracts Manager, Ian Carswell, said: “We carried out the work in two phases to minimise disruption. The second phase was scheduled during the winter months when Condover Hall was closed. We took account of the client’s needs and delivered the project on time and on budget, ready for the new season.”
External works to provide paths, landscaping and a turning area were also carried out.
Morris Property is part of a fifth-generation family business group working in property investment and management, new build residential and commercial developments and restoration schemes.Back to news
