Restoration and Refurbishment

 

Ellis and Co are equipped to compete building projects to reorder the arrangement and layout of historic buildings.  We act as principle contractor offering comprehensive trades in-house to reduce the need for sub-contractors. We collaborate with an established selection of heritage specialists where additional specialist skills are required, in undertaking full M&E packages, creating new floors levels, installing lifts and glazed balustrades. Our contract and site managers and supportive trade teams work together with architects, clients and PCC leaders, English Heritage representatives and other stakeholders to schedule and deliver large and complex project work seemlessly.
