Modernisation & Reuse

Modernisation and reuse in civic buildings often involves managing projects that support new ways of working or new uses for buildings that are redundant, underused or inefficient to operate. Delivering best value comes from understanding the desired outcomes and then developing the optimum construction solutions through collaboration and innovation.

Through creativity and planning, occupied and operational premises can continue to function well during the improvement works with the minimum of disruption.

Contractor and consultant partner

Collaboration is the hallmark of our work. Our processes, knowledge and skill enable us to manage projects from feasibility stage to completion; delivering a soft landing for the building users and managers. We draw together the right consultants, partners and suppliers to bring tested innovation, value for money and operational efficiency to the project.

Our experienced teams use a rigorous approach to fully test design ideas and engineering solutions. Effective control, delivery performance and high standards of finish are delivered through our trusted supply chain.

We are committed to developing great working relationships. Our decade long partnership with the London Borough of Hackney demonstrates how we help our customers improve their performance and efficiency. As well as the construction of a new Customer Service Centre – which established a new approach to service delivery for the council – we also delivered four phases of modernisation works at the listed Town Hall. These ranged from lift improvements and renewing heating systems to modernisation and upgrades to enhance its use as a flexible and efficient events venue and revenue generator.
