Breathing new life into existing buildings is a core specialism of our company and refurbishment projects equate to approximately 55% of our overall business.
We have an enviable track record in the conservation of historic and listed buildings and have successfully restored a wide range of buildings from places of worship, such as the world renowned Rosslyn Chapel, to prestigious Town Halls in Paisley, Renfrew and Kirkintilloch.
Whilst listed buildings offer opportunities to provide contemporary spaces within iconic structures, there are several buildings constructed in the more recent past which can benefit from conversion and refurbishment. CBC have been involved in several schemes which have transformed buildings which have been either derelict, or not fit for purpose, into modern facilities. Examples include the refurbishment of the schools estate in Renfrewshire, Glasgow and Inverclyde. These schools have included buildings from the Victorian period through to facilities constructed in the 60’s and 70’s. Many of these projects have been delivered within operational facilities requiring the stringent application of CBC’s health, safety and good neighbour processes.
One of our key strengths in refurbishment projects is the retention of a skilled and experienced trades base. The skills of our trades team are supplemented by our specialist CBC Stone division who are specialists in stonework repair and have worked on the sensitive restoration of several listed and historical buildings.
