Contract Value

Circa £450k

We were approached by Gresford architects to undertake a sympathetic renovation of a  Historic England listed building.

We were initially tasked with a total interior refurbishment including kitchens & bathrooms. During initial discussions with the client and architect we proposed tried and tested energy saving measures that could be implemented during the refurbishment process. These would enhance the year-round comfort of the building. Icynene spray foam insulation was injected into the roof area and into timber frame wall sections. The entire floor of the house was excavated and rebuilt with PIR which was then liquid screeded.

Bow Tie Construction assisted with the re-design of structural steel layouts in the kitchen area to achieve maximum head height and to allow tall windows and doors. We designed and installed the bespoke steel staircase using reclaimed scaffolding boards as steps. The staircase uses extremely slim laser cut profiles.

All new windows were fitted including including new rooflights and Critall products. The large 3m x 2.4m kitchen feature window slides into the existing wall and creates a seamless connection between the kitchen diner and patio terrace.

Bow Tie joiners built the bespoke panelling with an invisible door that was installed in the snug. We also repaired existing feature beams and added new beams.

We undertook a full re-wire and re-plumbing of entire house including adding a water booster, high performance cylinder and two boilers. We fitted an MVHR system for half the house where the main bedrooms and bathrooms are.

  • Your guys did a very good job on the [window] installation, nice and precise and the assemblies fitted perfectly....Very good silicon application too, with a nice 5mm joint. So please do thank them on behalf of Cristina and myself. We are very pleased.
