Carillion Amey

Building Transformation’s unquestionable honesty and enthusiasm for ensuring the client receives the correct whole-life solution (rather than a quick fix) resulted in us being able to ensure the building was not only returned to its former glory, but will stay that way for years to come. I would recommend them to anyone.

Customer service is paramount to Building Transformation and they invested vast amounts of time in providing me with a programme to facilitate what was a very complex and time-specific programme of work for the site. The quality and level of support provided by Building Transformation is priceless to any client/contractor.

Wolverhampton Council

The approach and advice on setting up the works at the Wolverhampton Civic Centre were first-class. Building Transformation’s attention to detail was excellent and the RAMS were followed meticulously to every detail. We were delighted with the works and service, and would not hesitate to use them again, nor hesitate to recommend them to any organisation.

Land Securities

A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight to deal with the traffic issues, while the site remained open throughout. The project took around three weeks to complete and went exceptionally well; the Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work round dynamic operational issues. The clean was of a high standard and has made a significant different to the image of the building. A very difficult job done well.

Suzanne Green - - Land Securities

I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business. They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping slowly win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.

Needless to say Building Transformation is a name that is now becoming known and respected.

Just signed off the job with Richard. Myself, the bosses and the tenant all are very pleased with the work. It definitely looks rejuvenated just a case of painting the concrete window surrounds in the new year to finish it off. Have found your company and staff very professional and helpful which has facilitated a project with minimal inconvenience and disruption to our in situ tenants.

Tamsin Griffith - Property Manager - Courtney Road Primary School, Bristol

Our Approach

PLANNING

Façade cleaning and external building refurbishment on period properties should only be undertaken by specialist traditional craftspeople and conservation specialists. We often find that number of different projects need to be undertaken to restore, restabilise and refurbish period properties back to their former glory. Before starting any project, we work with the client to ensure all the correct planning regulations are in place, conservation guidelines and all relevant BS standards have been observed and understood before moving forward with the project.

TESTING

Whether your building is stone, brick, terracotta, painted or coated; listed, heritage, religious, residential or commercial, our test trials and surveys will enable us to develop a transparent specification and solution for your building which will in turn help you to put together a sound business case or maintenance plan.

DELIVERY

We listen to our clients and therefore know that they love as much clarity and detail at the start of a project as possible.  We have a dedicated in-house surveying team, devoted to providing clients with the information they need to tackle their cleaning/restoration project. We work closely with our clients to deliver our expert solutions safely with full consideration for building users and the building function.

MAINTENANCE

We can provide building maintenance services tailored to your building fabric, climate and budget. No matter what your issue, we have the specialist solutions you need to preserve and protect your property.
