The site was the former Mater Dei school situated off Parkway. The project involved demolishing a prefabricated extension and to restore the old class room wing back to it's original Georgian style renovating the arched window brickwork and installing new made to measure windows. Our clients the Focolare Movement, also included in the project the refurbishment of the residential area of the building. We renovated 20 bedrooms to include en-suite bathrooms and gave the building a clean modern internal environment. Various meeting rooms, corridors and kitchen areas were also refurbished involving extensive drylining, plastering, electrical, plumbing and heating work (including a new boiler room. We returned in the spring of 2009 to commence the 2nd phase of the building refurbishment.
This project involved a large extension to local community elderly person day centre that was funded by the national lottery. The extension was to act as an open space for the centre to put on events/ functions and also act as an area that can be adjusted to suit the various activities that take place there (ground work taking place). The project was managed from start to finish by RCP Contractors on behalf of the local authority, with all extension features to match the existing building, including: brick work, parapet fascia, windows and doors (finished extension external). Internally, due to the various activities to take place in the extension a solid timber floor was installed due to it's hard wearing nature.
We have carried out numerous insurance related projects relating to flood repairs and in the case of this project underpinning repairs. Once the underpinning was completed all cracks and tears to internal and external load bearing walls are repaired with a special mortar and fixings to strengthen the walls. The property ground floor slab was then relaid, having been removed for underpinning. The building was finally re-plastered internally, re-rendered externally and then decorated back to its former glory as structurally safe habitable home.
St. Columbus College
This project was carried out on behalf of the college during the school summer holidays. The brief was to build a new groundsman store/garage for plant and equipment storage. A new road way was also installed to access the store. The building was designed to be in-keeping with the other college buildings. (pre start site set up), (The building at over site stage ready for the concrete floor slab to be poured), (brick and block work nearing roof wall plate level), (completed building and associated roadway).
Our client had purchased two Victorian semi detached town houses. We were to knock both buildings into one creating on the ground floor a veterinary centre including; consulting rooms, operating theatre, x-ray room, animal cleaning room and animal overnight stay/ rest area. The 1st floor was to be turned into a staff kitchen/ dinner and the clients office. On the 2nd floor bedrooms and bathrooms for the veterinary staff were created. This project involved a lot of demolition works to combine the two buildings. Extensive structural rebuilding and steel support beams and columns were also used to support the openings that were made through structural load bearing walls. The building was also virtually rewired and plumbed in order to function as a surgery. Finished veterinary shop front and two vets working in one of the new consulting rooms).
