Our company has extensive experience in delivering refurbishment projects over a number of sectors up to the value of £20m. We understand that refurbishing a property is often preferable – and more cost-effective – compared to demolishing or abandoning it, and it’s particularly relevant when a building undergoes a change of use or new ownership.

With our experience we have become familiar with all the kinds of issues a refurbishment project can reveal and we know just how to deal with troublesome buildings. Some areas of expertise include:

  • Investigating existing structures where the technical detail is not to hand, and enable the design to be developed for the client
  • Close collaboration with the client and design team to ensure project delivery
  • Assist the client to bring existing building/structure to modern standards
  • Checking of infrastructure to supply services, e.g. mechanical and electrical
  • Checks to ensure Disability Discrimination Act 2005 (DDA) compliance
  • Extensive experience with BREEAM environmental standards
  • Energy efficiencies and insulation ‘U’ values
  • Fire safety and security

We have recently completed a multi-phased refurbishment programme for the Guildhall in Swansea, having successfully completed our fifth phase of an ongoing refurbishment programme worth in excess of £20m (for the City & County of Swansea Council).  Other clients we have recently worked with include Cardiff University, the Arch Diocese of Cardiff, Cardiff Council and Bridgend Council.
