Works started at The Wharf in January, but the site was shut down due to the pandemic. Builders moved back in to finish the job in July when the site re-opened and designs were tweaked to ensure the pub was compliant with Covid-19 regulations on social distancing requirements.
To allow the site to reopen safely digital technologies were used to communicate and collaborate, for example, 3D walkthroughs of the site were used to cut down on the number of people travelling to site.One of the biggest challenges in updating The Wharf was building a terrace over the lake from the ground floor. To do this, over 20 piles were driven into the lake to support the new structure.
The makeover has created a spacious and contemporary pub with more dining spaces, a function room, a vast kitchen, an over-water terrace and reconfigure of the bar area to suit the new layout.
