Restoration & Refurbishment

Our portfolio of restoration and refurbishment projects is impressive. Over the last 25 years we have developed a reputation for successfully applying a wealth of experience in traditional building methodology, combined with modern construction techniques to complete projects to the highest of standards.

We have restored and refurbished barns, Georgian townhouses and Victorian factories and while the projects may occasionally present us with the “unexpected”, we know that is all part of the challenge (and enjoyment) of undertaking this kind of specialist work.
Notable clients include Enville and Stalybridge Estates, The National Trust and The Black Country Living Museum.

Some examples of our refurbishment projects are:




Having worked with Enville Estates for over 10 years we were approached to carry out major refurbishment works on an 18th Century cottage.

Where possible, original elements of the cottage were retained and close attention to detail ensured renewed elements were of a similar or facsimile nature.

Underfloor heating, upgraded cavity walls, new electrics and a complete reconfiguration of the cottage’s interior including a kitchen and bathroom fit out ensured the cottage could be re-marketed as a modern and energy efficient home but  still retain its original character.





This project was divided into an internal and external fit-out.

External envelope repairs readied the building for later commercial conversion. The works included repairs to the roof structure, recovering of the roof, including all high level lead work, reconstruction of the failing parapets, repairs to the central lantern, supporting structure and window repairs.

Further to completion of the external repairs the internal space was refurbished into a modern office fit-out.

Works included the upgrading of the heating system to incorporate underfloor heating and a heat pump.

Care was taken to preserve and retain existing features of the building wherever possible.
