Refurbishing an iconic building of such great architectural importance like Balfron Tower is always going to be difficult from a Heritage and Warranty perspective.


The existing concrete facade posed numerous hurdles from a Warranty point of view however the expert design team produced a bespoke remediation plan which enabled us to proceed with insurance cover. when complete this refurbishment will have restored Balfron to its forer glory. It's a scheme we're very proud to be involved with.
