Full refurbishment of a Grade II listed building in Cirencester
Hardware.com are a multi-national company who, as a long-standing client of The Property Conservation Company, commissioned us to carry out a full refurbishment of their Grade II listed office.
Location: Cirencester Business Park
Feedback from this project:
We used The Property Conservation Company for a major refurbishment at Wellington House and a smaller unit on the same site. Total cost of works was in excess of £400k, taking around 6 months. Peter project-managed the entire programme, which was quite complex because at the same time, we were moving three locations nationally into two locations at Kemble Enterprise Park, whilst changing part of Wellington House from office to light industrial, so it was hard to foresee at the start of works what our final needs would be by the end of the works. We also needed to do lots of value-engineering during the process to meet budgets which Peter took in his stride. Peter gave good advice throughout the programme and suggested alternative ways of doing things where appropriate. Peter employed high quality tradespeople and works have been completed to a high standard. I would have no hesitation recommending The Property Conservation Company as a result.- Gwyn Hicks, Director, Hardware.com
The building was originally carried out by our team 12 years ago, and is to this day the UK Head Office for Hardware.com. They required a complex, major refurbishment to consolidate three national locations into two. It was essential for staff to continue their day-to-day work with minimal disruption. The entire project was completed in 20 weeks, both on time and within budget.
