Little Beaulieu rises

Beaulieu

In this previous blog we showed you the plans for the build at Beaulieu and how it will look when it's built. The build is now well underway and the progress is swift with some structures completed already. The way the CAP.Co teams work onsite are in ten-day stints with a four-day break. On tight deadlines, we can overlap teams so there is always a team building. It also allows us to work anywhere in the UK or Europe and still allow people to get home if they need to or have a good break in-between. You can imagine how much fun those four-day breaks were for the build team, stuck out in Bermuda on the Boundless Play build.

The Beaulieu build is scheduled to be open to the public early in 2020.

We'll show you more progress further down the line, but in the meantime here are a few images from the first ten days of the build.

This is on the way to becoming Little Beaulieu’s brilliant timber palace, drawing on the heritage of Lord Montagu’s ancestral home of Palace House and Beaulieu Abbey. You can see that Archie is still there 🙂
