HISTORIC RESTORATION HELPS SHAPE REBIRTH OF TOWN HIGH STREET

The restoration of a commercial property on Eccleston Road in the heart of Prescot, Liverpool, is now complete re-establishing the building, which dates back to the 1800’s, to its former glory.

The transformation of the property forms part of a wider regeneration scheme focusing on this part of the town, breathing new life into the central thoroughfare. The Victoria façade has now been reinstated along with all necessary repairs for client, CASS Associates

Under the scheme, all windows have been replaced with sliding sash windows whilst the original chimney has been reinstated. Lead lime gutters have now been introduced along with a stone silo. From first floor level, the brickwork has been replaced using original materials and bonded with a lime cement finish. All original ironmongery has also been reintroduced.

The programme has been carried out across a 16-week period during which the Frank Rogers multi skilled team has applied a series of modern and traditional techniques to make all of the necessary improvements.

Dave Linderman, Contracts Manager at Frank Rogers commented:

“This has been a fantastic project that has dramatically improved the facade of this Victorian building, there are a series of similar works taking place nearby that together will inject a new lease of life to this central area of the town.

“There has been a lot of interest in our work here and the changes have been welcomed by local people who are really pleased to see a sympathetic restoration taking pace.”
