Frequently visited by Prince Charles, Royal Pavilion in Poundbury, Dorchester is a rather prestigious project located on Queen Mother Square for the Duchess of Cornwall, consisting of 20 luxury apartments with a retail area set to become a luxury spa facility.
The main build is complete and A.P.E are just about to start the separate contract for the spa facility located on the ground floor. This contract will cover exactly the same disciplines under the spa’s control.
Project length from design to completion was two years in total, and A.P.E was involved from the very beginning with an initial consultation at the design stage.
Industry awards recognition for A.P.E. and Royal Pavilion, Poundbury!
