Work underway to restore historic building

Work has started to restore an historic building at a prominent location on Carrington Street in Nottingham.

Working in partnership with property consultants Bruton Knowles, Rayner Davies Architects have designed works which will fully renovate Gordon House, a 93-year-old building at 12 Carrington Street, in line with the Townscape Heritage Scheme.

The work includes the rejuvenation of the frontage of the building, reinstating the fully-glazed windows that were in place in the 1920s when it was an early car showroom selling popular British vehicles including MG and Wolseley.

The stonework will be cleaned and repaired.  The ground floor will boast 356 sq m of retail space while upstairs the office space will continue to be occupied by Bhatia Best Solicitors.

Specialist contractors LDC Heritage Restoration have been appointed to undertake the work, which is expected to complete later this year.
