Heritage & Refurbishment

Russell WBHO has an excellent track record in the restoration and refurbishment of historic buildings.

These sensetive programmes require significant specialist expertise, knowledge of the relevant legislation and preservation techniques, and benefit from a trusted supply chain developed over many years.

We take a collaborative approach to each project, working with our client, the architects and designers, local and national heritage authorities, and a variety of historic buildings specialists to ensure a sensitive yet cost-conscious restoration.

Clients have often utilised the experience and expertise of our specialist heritage team for successive projects, such as Hermes Investment Management for the NOMA regeneration in Manchester and Vita Student Living for their Liverpool accommodation development, and this knowledge allows us to provide detailed support for projects with individual heritage elements, façade retention, for example.

Heritage and refurbishment specifics

Russell WBHO has been retained by Hermes Investment Management to assist with the restoration of its heritage stock as part of the £800m NOMA regeneration. The team has delivered subsequent projects, all high quality heritage refurbishments of listed or historically important buildings including the award-winning Hanover.

The Vita Student restoration projects in Liverpool were some of the most complex in the company’s history, with Grade II listed Chapel and Crosshalls buildings brought back from near dereliction to create high quality residential accommodation within one of the city’s most important conservation areas.

“Good building conservation is rarely achieved when a commercially viable project is required. Hanover is therefore exceptional as it has restored a neglected Grade II building into Grade A offices.”
