As the coronavirus crisis deepens, most Taylor & Boyd staff will be working from home. We may have a restricted telephone service through our switchboard during this period but otherwise our staff are working normally. You can email and someone will be in touch, or email the person you are trying to contact directly. Thank you for your patience during this challenging time for all of us.

Jury’s Hotel, Plymouth


Taylor & Boyd designed a 10-storey concrete frame to replace that of an existing 2-storey building. It was developed on a sloping site, with one side built into the ground and propping up an arterial route into Plymouth.

Demolition of the existing walls and rebuilding a new retaining wall was complex and required detailed sequential planning and design. As planning supervisors we had to be sure that coordination of the demolition process was planned meticulously.

The works were phased to avoid compromising the stability of the adjacent public road. This procedure was further complicated by the fact that demolition was undertaken within the enablement contract, thus introducing a change in main contractor under CDM Regulations.

Ensuring timely, accurate information and communication were essential throughout the project.
