Carley Daines & Partners have worked on numerous major buildings where substantial repair and refurbishment for a proposed change of use has been required. These projects have involved working in conservation areas and on listed buildings.
When it comes to major buildings, repair, and refurbishment projects are common to maintain the structural integrity, functionality, and aesthetic appeal of the property. Here are some examples of repair and refurbishment activities for major buildings:
Structural Repairs: Over time, buildings may experience wear and tear, leading to structural issues such as cracks, foundation problems, or weakened load-bearing elements. Major repair projects may involve reinforcing or replacing structural components to ensure the building’s stability and safety.
Roofing Repairs: The roof is an essential part of any building and can suffer from leaks, deterioration, or damage due to weather conditions. Repairing or replacing the roofing materials, addressing drainage issues, and ensuring proper insulation are common refurbishment tasks.
Façade Refurbishment: The external appearance of a building is crucial for its overall aesthetics. Refurbishing the façade may include cleaning, repairing, or replacing damaged cladding or façade materials, repainting, or installing new windows to improve energy efficiency and enhance the building’s visual appeal.
Accessibility Improvements: Adapting buildings to meet accessibility requirements is an important aspect of repair and refurbishment. This may involve installing ramps, elevators, accessible restrooms, and other features to ensure compliance with accessibility standards and provide equal access for all individuals.
