All three divisions of RDF Building Services were deployed this summer at the Grade II Listed Church of England Primary School.
Built in 1840, the building required specialist repairs to its roof and stone copings.
Three classrooms benefited from a complete remodelling that included the demolition & repositioning of walls, new floor coverings, door sets, sound proofing panels, decorations, electrical alterations, storage units and the manufacture of a bespoke solid oak glazed panel between the two classrooms that allows natural light to flood the learning areas.
The coloured section of the exposed roof trusses, combined with the shaped acoustic panels and the up & down light from teh new light fittings give the classrooms a whole new look.
All the works were coordinated and carried out to a pre-planned sequential programme ensuring the project was delivered on time ready to welcome the pupils back to the new term.
“The quality of the work from start to finish was of the highest possible standard. The RDF staff were highly professional in every aspect and we are delighted with the finished classrooms. They will undoubtedly enhance teaching and learning”
Helen Sanderson, Head Teacher
RDF Building have successfully won a negotiated tender to complete the redevelopment and delicate conservation of a Grade II Listed Building.
The development, that is already raising interest and offers from prospective purchasers, involves changing the use of the building from its current commercial use back into high end residential dwellings that have been affectionately referred to as ‘Affordable Grandeur’.
The building has many period features that are stunning in both their beauty and detail which is one of the many reasons that the property developer chose to partner with RDF Building, instead of the other tenderers, on this scheme.
“I know from RDF’s impressive portfolio of completed projects, consistent track record and client feedback that I am in safe hands with my investment”
The impressive scheme will create eight stunning villas complete with a private garden area and secure off street parking.The gated community will also have large communal gardens with many existing mature trees that can be enjoyed by all the family. There are several parks, schools and a cricket club within walking distance but it is serene nature of the site, due in part to it’s the leafy location, that already has buyers hooked.
Further updates, including plans of the site and Estate Agents details where the properties will be available through, will be posted shortly.
The Lowther Hotel in York bore the brunt of repeated flooding last year on no less than three separate occasions. We worked closely with our client, the landlord, the designer and insurers to propose a refurbishment scheme..
Two recently completed projects have given part of Wetherby’s Main Street a much needed lift. The George & Dragon pub had deteriorated over a number of years and had become something of an eye-sore. When it was purchased by our client for redevelopment we were appointed to transform the building and outbuildings into retail units, flats and two detached properties. Our work on these properties led to our appointment by another client to redevelop an adjacant property creating three shops and three flats. This project incorporated a retained façade new build requiring extensive steelwork. The two schemes have been a great success with all the domestic accommodation sold or let and full occupation of the retail units, The Yorkshire Building Society recently acquiring the last remaining unit
