Our buildings

All courses will include site visits to historic buildings in Jersey. This will give you and course tutors the opportunity to discuss repair techniques as well as general approaches to building conservation. We have partnered with a number of organisations to provide access to a range of buildings, some of which are live sites. 

16 New Street (National Trust for Jersey)

This Georgian townhouse was saved from demolition in the later 1990s and refurbished in the first decade of the 20th century. It is now is use as a museum and event venue and provides a case study in the repair of a near derelict building using traditional techniques, and installing new services that provide the building with opportunities for flexible use.

La Ronde Porte (National Trust for Jersey)

The most recent bequest to the NTJ, this traditional farm complex includes buildings of the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Occupied until recently, the farm provides a case study for approaches to refurbishment, joinery repair and surveying historic buildings.

Hospital Block, Elizabeth Castle (Jersey Heritage)

The early 19th century Hospital Block is currently undergoing repairs, including the roof and structure, the reconstruction of internal brick-stud walls and lath and plaster. Having been closed to the public for more than 50 years, it provides a case study in the repair of a Grade 1 listed building and its re-presentation as a museum.

Sans Souci (Andium Homes)

This fine 19th century villa once had a large garden, part of which was later used for the construction of Ann Street Brewery. It will become the headquarters for Autism Jersey and provides a good case study in how to repair and extend a Grade 2 listed building with fine interiors for modern office and therapeutic use.
