The Three Shires building on Great Underbank in the centre of Stockport is one of the town’s oldest buildings, the original building being timber framed and dating from the 17th century. Structurally, the property had suffered some neglect. Having completed all external structural repairs necessary to provide long term stability on the owners’ behalf during 2001, we were then retained by the new tenants of the 1st & 2nd floors to arrange and manage their internal refurbishment contract.

A detailed specification was prepared incorporating our clients’ requirements but at the same time ensuring that the changes were in keeping with the character of the building. Due to the historic importance of this building for the town of Stockport, the original structure of the building remains in place in some areas being purposefully exposed.
