Our construction division undertook the refurbishment of a Grade II listed building, which dated back to the 1780s, as part of the Co-op’s acquisition framework.

The building required extensive work to make it fit for purpose before the fit out could begin, including structural alterations and propping, lowering the floor, the partial replacement of the roof and full upgrades of the M&E facilities. We also built a small extension to the rear of the building and re-laid the car park. The building was then fitted out in line with the Co-op’s brand standards

This was an extremely difficult and complicated scheme which required a great deal of design input, particularly on structural issues.

We were completely responsible for the design and worked with our preferred consultants to reach a solution which fitted our client’s needs and respected the historical nature of the building.
