A current high profile project in Bridgnorth will be featured in the local press, please read below…
“£200,000 project for old building…
A well-known building in the centre of Bridgnorth, which has lain empty for several years, is to be given a new lease of life by a local company.
The Old Police Station in Whitburn Street, used as the Citizen’s Advice Bureau for many years, has been bought by the long-established firm of accountants, Stanton Ralph & Co.
The company currently has its offices in St Leonard’s Close, but after a £200,000 refurbishment plan, will move into the new premises in Whitburn Street in summer of next year.
Local award-winning architect Vic Johnson has been commissioned to come up with radical designs for the building to create an eco-friendly and efficient working environment.
Phil Wood, a principal of Stanton Ralph & Co said: “This is a very exciting and innovative project which is envisaged to take six to nine months to complete.
“We are delighted to be able to expand our company, while remaining in the town centre, to enable us to continue serving our clients and local business needs.”
Architect Vic Johnson added: “This redevelopment scheme will feature the concept of natural ventilation, using a centralised atrium, to provide daylight and fresh air throughout the building.
“There will be a massive increase in the thermal performance, thereby reducing running costs and bills, which of course is wholeheartedly approved by the accountants!
“It is really rewarding to be able to work with local clients to bring this old building up to date in both style and efficiency.”
Stanton Ralph employ a staff of 16 at The Old Grammar School in St Leonard’s Close.”
