Conversion will provide much-needed apartments in Cheltenham

Builders are pressing ahead with a major conversion project on a former office building in the centre of Cheltenham.

Helm Construction has been called in to convert the former telecoms company base on the corner of Oriel Road and Vittoria Walk into 15 new apartments.

Helm Construction commercial manager, Chris Catley, said: "It makes sense to convert redundant office or retail properties to provide homes for the community and Oriel House is a great example of what can be achieved."

The five-storey office building is being converted into 14 two-bedroom apartments and a one-bedroom apartment on the ground floor.

"Once complete, the building will be clad with a modern insulated render system with new windows throughout.

"The soundproof layers between units will also be of the highest quality. The build has to be of the highest standard reflecting the quality of finish that the client and Cheltenham demands."

Each apartment will have its own dedicated parking space and access to a large cycle store.

The 40 week project is expected to be complete by July 2018. The scheme is the biggest contract the firm has ever worked on in Cheltenham.
