Refurbishment

Careful and sympathetic renovation can extend a building’s useful life, reducing the need for future remedial work and providing long-term cost savings.

Our refurbishment division covers every aspect of refurbishment for all types of properties including Social Housing, Student Accommodation, Government Buildings, Office, Retail, leisure, Industrial, Healthcare, Education and Residential. CGC can work with your vision for your property – from bathroom renovations to kitchen installations, painting and decorating, plumbing and heating, plastering and electrical. If it is needed in a property, then we know how to improve it. 

Our high-quality and fully qualified tradesmen take great pride in their work from beginning to end, and will always ensure that the final finish meets clients’ requirements. 

CGC has vast experience in delivering projects in “live” occupied premises, with phased programming ensuring controlled staff movement, public safety, and business continuity.

Cairncross House, Glasgow

We carried out full refurbishment of the administrative areas of this self-catering undergraduate accommodation, including creating a temporary office for staff to use during the works. CGC also manufactured the furniture in our specialist joinery workshop. All work was carried out while the building was occupied and in use.

Student Accommodation, Preston

Following the trial refurbishment of two student apartments, we were asked to carry out similar works on a further 99 flats. This included full refurbishment of bedrooms, living and dining rooms, as well as kitchen, corridor, stairs and landing and a new gym. The programme was scheduled to take ten weeks, but we completed it in just over seven.

Renfrewshire Council

We handle an exceptionally wide range of works for Renfrewshire Council, including maintenance, refurbishment, rot eradication and repairs to the Council’s 14,000-unit housing stock and to all public buildings, including schools, offices and administrative facilities. CGC have successfully secured a number of Measured Term Contracts with various Councils across Scotland.

City Gate Construction

We have highly skilled builders, machine operators, maintenance engineers, joiners, painters and metalworkers. This enables us to handle every kind of building work from large-scale refurbishment to purpose-designed joinery.
