EBL have been involved in the restoration of a wide variety of listed buildings, ranging from individual dwellings, 200 year old churches and large government buildings. We have the specialist skills needed, together with the experience needed to comply stringent controls and regulations laid down by English Heritage for a Listed Building, and the equally gruelling - and often conflicting - fire, sound and safety regulations.
Some of our recent projects to restore Grade Two listed buildings have earned the company national and regional recognition. For the imaginative conversion of an 18th century barn complex in Sutton Weaver, Cheshire, into eight luxury houses, EBL won the coveted "Builder of the Year" award from Vale Royal Council. Project director for the project, Bob Wilson, was also "Highly Commended" in the Construction Manager of the Year Awards, organised by the Chartered Institute of Builders.
Similar projects undertaken by EBL include the restoration of one of Halton's oldest buildings - a 17th century timber-framed cottage in Main Street, Halton Village. As well as the total restoration and refurbishment of the historic Christleton Hall near Chester, built in 1603, by a member of the Egertons, the Cheshire aristocrats who had their main family seat at Tatton Park.
