Managing Director of Farncombe Estate, Mark Philip-Sorensen, turned the first clod of earth to mark the start of the construction of a new £3.5m extension for the Cotswold Conference Centre this week.

The new facility will provide 32 bedrooms for the conference centre.

Farncombe has also reinforced its environmental credentials by using materials from locally-sourced companies to aid in the construction.

It also currently holds a bronze award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme and Philip-Sorensen wants to take the company forward to eventually earn silver and gold standards.

“I want to make Farncombe one of the greenest venues in the Midlands. When it comes to sustainability on this project, we’re minimising our heat loss levels and working with local construction companies,” he added.
