Norwich Hub returns to see Morgan Sindall’s castle progress

Norwich Castle: the project will transform the internal spaces of the Norman Keep

CIOB members were delighted in September to be invited back to look at the developments to date at the historic site of Norwich Castle. 

Norwich Castle: Royal Palace Reborn is a £15m project to transform Norwich Castle’s iconic Norman Keep, one of Europe’s most important early medieval castles.

The project will transform the Keep’s internal spaces by rebuilding its medieval floors and rooms. It is one of the largest heritage projects of its kind currently underway in the UK.

The Morgan Sindall site team gave a presentation on the progress made to the two remaining phases of the scheme, talking about the challenges encountered and updating visitors on the journey.

Attendees saw at first hand the Percival section, which is close to handover, and also the roof structure to the Keep, which was well under way. 

CIOB chief executive Caroline Gumble joined the tour. Members hope to be returning for the final visit to see the finished result early next year.
