Bespoke Fluted Ceiling installed at Jesus College

Jesus College is one of the leading colleges in the University of Cambridge. It was established between 1496 and 1516 on the site of the twelfth-century Benedictine nunnery of St Mary and St Radegund, whose ruinous buildings, which included a huge church, were adapted to house it. Today these buildings remain at the college’s centre.

Niall McLaughlin Architects, who kindly supplied these images, won planning and building consent for the significant development of Jesus College.

The West Court development included the sensitive refurbishment and extension of a grade II listed building to provide research facilities, offices, social spaces and accommodation. A new café pavilion and basement bar extends the building’s north elevation and provides a prominent link to the rest of the college.

Hodkin & Jones were commissioned to supply and install the large GRG (glass reinforced gypsum) bespoke fluted ceiling in the basement bar area, just of one of many GRG projects Hodkin & Jones have recently undertaken.

Manufactured at our factory in Dronfield and then delivered to Cambridge, the plaster ceiling flutes were produced as large as possible. This ensured a smooth finish with minimum joints when our skilled team of fixers carried out the installation work.

We would welcome the opportunity to meet clients to discuss their potential interior design projects, and how our technical expertise in manufacture and installation of bespoke plaster mouldings could be utilised.

Jacobean Ceiling at Abbots Tower

We recently had the pleasure of helping Laura and Scott to create their dream home, designing and manufacturing the plaster mouldings which make up the Jacobean Ceiling in their French château inspired drawing room.

The project was featured in Dumfries & Galloway Life, the Scottish Magazine of the Year – get yourself a copy to read the full story.

Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Institute of Art moved to this restored city landmark – the head post office – a grade II listed building known to generations of Sheffielders, which had stood empty for more than 15 years.

Following a £9m regeneration project which saw as many of the original features as possible retailed, the Institute of Art moved into their new home. The building now houses art and design courses including fashion design, graphic design, fine art, product design, interior design and many more. Students are able to learn, make and create in large studio spaces and specialist workshops using the latest technologies.

Hodkin & Jones were commissioned to restore the beautiful ceiling back to its original splendour. Some of the cornice was water damaged, so we had to take this down and start afresh from the existing moulds, then fix back to the ceilings. We also repaired cornice that was damaged on site to retain as much of the original mouldings as possible.

Now the building is an exciting environment for art and design staff and students, and welcomes hundreds of visitors through its doors every day. There is also a café and exhibition space which is open to the public, giving local people – many of whom worked in and used the head post office – the chance to reminisce in a building restored to its former glory.

We’ve worked with other educational institutes to restore aspects of their buildings in the past. Read about out the bespoke fluted ceiling we installed at Jesus College, University of Cambridge.

Yarborough Hotel

The Yarborough Hotel in Grimsby was built in 1851 by the Earl of Yarborough, who was aware the new railway linking Grimsby into the growing rail network would bring more trade to the area.

Over the years the hotel has gained much history, most notably as the location of the Yarborough Riot. It now spends its days as a JD Wetherspoons, and welcomes many visitors through its doors on a daily basis.

The hotel, a symbol of the town’s transition from an 18th-century fishing village into a great Victorian port and once very nearly demolished, is now a listed building.

Hodkin & Jones were commissioned to restore the decorative Victorian ceiling that had structural problems causing it to sag and twist with numerous cracks.

Once we had inspected the building, it was clear that there were significant levels of damage giving concerns for the safety of operatives and thereafter the public once it opened. The decision was made and agreed by an independent heritage and conservation specialist that the best way forward was to save what was possible and take down and make new from the original sections of the remaining ceiling.

Our specialist team returned to site to take sections and squeezes of the ceiling and once brought back to our factory work began on the plaster mouldings to produce an exact replica of the original design.

We then returned to site to install the panels and are delighted at the results now the ceiling has been restored to its original splendour.

If you have a similar renovation project in mind, we would welcome the opportunity to have a chat so please get in touch.
