The Richmond Club Hotel was severely damaged by fire in November 2008 and initial refurbishment works were carried out to the first floor in 2009 so that the public bar and courtyard could become operational as soon as possible. The restoration of the second storey and the addition of the third storey have been a long time in the making and a major achievement by all involved. The complexity of the project was high as parts of the roof needed to be continually removed and reinstated as the works proceeded. With steel issues and the floods and severe weather that came early in 2011, the project nearly ground to a halt. This whilst the pub is still operating downstairs. With a massive team effort, all at Visual Builders pulled together to complete on this stunning hotel on time. The uniqueness of this building is now complete and you would say it has a style all of its own—seeing is believing. A a credit to the vision of the owners and architects and to Visual Builders for successfully building it.
