Restoration work starts on site at Gordon House Nottingham

Work has started on site to restore an historic building at a prominent location on Carrington Street in central Nottingham – contributing further to the improving streetscape of the Southern Gateway that links the railway station to the new Broadmarsh car park and on into the city centre.

Working in partnership with property consultants Bruton Knowles, Rayner Davies Architects have designed works which will fully renovate Gordon House, the 93-year-old building at 12 Carrington Street, in line with the Townscape Heritage Scheme.

The work includes the rejuvenation of the frontage of the building, reinstating the fully-glazed windows that were in place in the 1920s when it was an early car showroom selling popular British vehicles including MG and Wolseley.  The stonework will be cleaned and repaired.

The ground floor will boast 356 sq m of vibrant retail space appealing to tenants looking to take advantage of the widespread regeneration efforts and a high footfall location close to the heart of the city centre and a busy transport hub.

Upstairs the office space will continue to be occupied by Bhatia Best Solicitors who plan to create a brand-new reception area.

Specialist contractors LDC Heritage Restoration have been appointed to undertake the work which is expected to complete later this year.
