Red Tower, York Bar Walls

We won the contract to carry out the internal upgrade to the iconic, historical building, built in 1491. The works consisted of forming a kitchenette, WC, a new glass encased staircase, oak windows, full electrical and plumbing installation and a fully functional 1st floor meeting space with aesthetic fabric sails in the roof to hide the roof structure above. Due to the flooding history each aspect of the build was compliant with all flood resilience requirements. For example, we installed a polished concrete kitchen worktop, with transportable kitchen units beneath which can be removed from site and all M&E installations were located at high level above the worktop. We also installed a bespoke made-to-measure 180 degree winder steelwork staircase and removable timber treads.

The Red Towers Directors Imelda Havers and Barry Beckwith vision was to bring this historic building to life by offering an inclusive, welcoming space for creative, learning and social activities, run by local people, encouraging local and wider community participation.
