The first phase of the refurbishment of the Richmond Building was completed by d+b facades in 2005. Phase II comprised insulated aluminium rainscreen and high-performance replacement windows tofurther elevations of the building, refurbishment of the adjacent workshop building and the two link bridges joining the same. Additional works included standing seam roof coverings to the north lights of the workshop building and single ply to flat surfaces, replacement windows to the roof lights, aluminium sandwich panels to north light gable ends and a new glazed entrance.


“d+b facades completed Phase I (western elevations) of this project in 2006 and were awarded Phase II following a separate successful tender in 2014. Overcladding a further four elevations of the Richmond Building, they seamlessly integrated the building envelope from these two different phases as well as completed a challenging refurbishment of the adjacent Workshop Annex. We received the same excellent and highly professional service as before”.
