A new development of 16 luxury homes has been constructed on the site of the Poor Clares Convent in the village of Baddesley Clinton in Warwickshire.

The convent itself has also been transformed into six new dwellings following its closure as an active convent in 2011 after 160 years.

Vortice Specification Manager Ken Johnson commented: “I worked closely with SANDS Plumbing and Heating Services London to ensure that the ventilation specified was suited to the type of building.

Due to having only one break out of the building façade, the Vort Leto was an ideal choice in order to maintain the finish of the fabric of the building. It was important to both SANDS Plumbing and Heating Services and to Vortice to maintain the historic aspects of the building.”
