Project Brief

+

This currently unoccupied former Booths offices is located in Preston, and Anderton Gables were instructed to carry out a Building Survey of the premises in order to provide budget costings for immediately required repair works. Anderton Gables Architectural Team also prepared a series of options for refurbishment or conversion of the building.

Project Summary

+

Given the age of the property, some signs of movement were evident due to historic settlement, but the building was considered to be in a satisfactory structural condition. Also, the roof coverings and rainwater goods had failed in certain locations and as such, deterioration and decay has befallen sections of the internal finishes and fittings.

Given the overall condition of the building, relatively minor works to the roof and brickwork damage could bring the building back into a viable condition.

Assuming the building was indeed brought back into a reasonable condition, AG’s Architectural department have investigated the possibility of converting the building into residential accommodation, providing a number of modern living spaces right in the heart of Preston’s City Centre.
