B and E Boys are shortlisted by the RICS for prestigeous North West award.
The restoration of Village Farmhouse, at Dunham Massey, Altrincham was completed by B & E Boys in 2011, after being appointed as the Main Contractor for The National Trust. The Royal Institute of Building Surveyors have selected the project from a large number of projects submitted and will soon be visiting thesite before making their final decision.
B and E Boys undertook a full interior strip out of the property which then had new mechanical and electrical services before being re-plastered, before having the benefit of a new kitchen, and four new bathrooms.
Care needed to be taken whilst carrying out the interior strip out as The National Trust wanted to retain two feature alcoves which were in excess of 200 years old.
The property then benefited from full interior redecoration and flooring. The exterior of the property was fully re-roofed and re-pointed. External landscaping of the surrounding gardens finished this property refurbishment to a high standard.
B & E Boys has 50 years of experience working on historic and Grade 1 and 2 listed properties such as Townley Hall Burnley, St Marys Chambers in Rawtenstall and Toll Barr Business Park in Stacksteads. The Company is well known for preserving local heritage with many of its former mills being renovated to enable employment use to continue.
The category winners and Project of the Year winner will be announced at the Awards-Ceremony and Dinner on the 3rd of May at The Point, Manchester. TV and radio comedian and author of the bestseller Round Ireland with a Fridge, Tony Hawks will be hosting the evening.
