Refurbishment and Renovation

More clients than ever are looking to refurbish rather than replace existing buildings. Updating and upgrading existing buildings often has cost advantages over new build and is more sustainable.

The refurbishment of properties is a sustainable solution for protecting our heritage and can bring a new lease of life to a building. Traditional buildings can be adapted to suit new uses and homes upgraded to suit modern living requirements.

Older building stock can be repaired to extend their life or given a face lift like the remodeling of the rear elevation to a grade II Georgian town house now used as offices..

Client Comment

“The building sets the context --- and the value, positive first impressions, as people step in to the scheme”.

"I was really impressed, with what is on offer, plus the whole feel of the building, it was very refreshing, and I think breaks the mould, in terms of changed expectations, for people and service delivery’’
