Princess Building

CDD Ltd were appointed to undertake the RC Detailing of all of the foundation elements, retaining walls, ground slab and columns.

The refurbishment of the grade II listed Princess Buildings in Halifax were to include the modernisation of the buildings to make them more energy efficient, but to maintain many historic architectural features. The exterior of the building was to be complemented by a completely redesigned interior and a modern extension to the rear to be built to allow easy access through and around the building.

We really enjoyed working on this project as most of our work involves RC Detailing on new builds. This was an interesting project as refurbishments can bring their own structural challenges, but as we’d worked with this client for a long time, it presented many tweaks along the way that really got the cogs going for all of us!
