Central Parade Rochester



The Englander Group breathe new life into a run down building in the Historic City of Rochester.


Unfortunately not a historic building that can be associated with Charles Dickens the famous author who resided in the Historic City of Rochester, and which provided a backdrop for some of the famous characters he created. But some would argue still of significant importance to the area.


Bourne are pleased to have been involved in helping The Englander Group completely transform a dilapidated post war series of mixed retail and residential units into 12 units for residential occupation at an affordable price.

What a difference a few months make! The before photographs showing a building in a state of disrepair and decay, and now a building that enhances the area visually and provides much needed homes for individuals and families. A credit to all involved.

AFTER                   Central-Parade-FrontCentral-Parade-Back


In this era where there is constant criticism of investment in producing new housing stock The Englander Group have taken the initiative in developing high specification residential units encompassing increased thermal and sound insulation to comply with the requirements of the building regulations and with the benefit of a Checkmate guarantee.




As can be seen from the photographs the interior of the units have been finished to a high specification with contemporary kitchens, bathrooms, traditional central heating system and high efficiency lighting together with tv and sky being provided.



Work on this contract has been managed on behalf of The Englander Group by PSK.


Adrian Martin Property Manager at The Englander Group writes:


" We are extremely pleased with the finished product and thankful to Bourne and PSK for their hard work on this project."

Berwick Street



We have all heard of the "Harry Potter books" One book led to a trilogy and then to a series. Shaftesbury PLC are weaving some magic of their own in Soho in the heart of London.
What started for Bourne Construction and Refurbishment as one contract soon became a trilogy then a series.      

With emphasis on Berwick Street located in a conservation area in the heart of the bustling and busy locale and identified as a priority in Westminster City Councils Action Area Plan, Shaftesbury PLC have sought to turn around the lack of investment in Berwick Streets historic buildings to create an improved appearance and an environment which will attract other investors and businesses to restore this formerly vibrant street traditionally known a Soho's high street to its former glory.


Bourne Construction and Refurbishment are pleased to have been involved in helping Shaftesbury to achieve their goal with the successful completion of works to no's 52,36,8.
Works comprise in the former two projects of the complete internal and external refurbishment with the creation of enhanced retail space at ground level and the creation of high specification apartments to the upper floors and rear areas.

   Berwick-St-Room Berwick-St-KitchenBerwick-St-Bathroom

No 8 has received the benefit of enhanced retail space at ground floor level but with the refurbishment of office space to a high specification on the upper floors.



True to JK Rowling form we have now commenced another, and are currently working on a more complex project at number 11 creating an increased size retail space at ground floor level by extending the basement at the rear and down another floor level using traditional underpinning techniques whilst creating high quality residential space to the upper levels behind the retained façade of the existing building.



Works on all contracts have been managed by Tuffin Ferraby and Taylor on behalf of Shaftesbury PLC.

Value No 8 Ground Floor Retail - £212000.00

Value No 11 - £1030000.00

Value No 36 - £510000.00

Value No 52 - £820000.00

Holborn Bars

"A VICTORIAN GOTHIC ICON"      Holborn-Bars-Outside3Holborn-Bars-Window



Holborn Bars the Iconic Victorian Gothic Building designed by Alfred Waterhouse and constructed between 1879 and 1901 still cuts an imposing shape on the ever changing skyline of Holborn, vying for a position between far modern buildings with less history and character.


Originally constructed to House the Headquarters of the Prudential Assurance Society the building has now been adapted to provide more flexible accommodation for mixed occupancy with one of the current tenants being English Heritage






Bourne Construction and Refurbishment secured all three phases of works in competitive tender for the cleaning repair and redecoration of the external fabric under the watchful supervision of Jones Lang LaSalle, English Heritage and Camden Conservation Department.




As can be seen from the photographs Phase I encompassed north courtyard, the rear rainscreen cladding to Beauchamp Street, part of the Brook Street and Leather Lane elevations, Phase II the Front elevation, south and east courtyards and phase III the roofs, remaining Brooke Street and Leather Lane elevations.




We are pleased to confirm that the work to all three phases and a latter contract for the refurbishment of the Main Reception area were completed on time and within budget.


Value Phase I - circa £420k Completed summer 2010


Value Phase II - circa £480k Completed summer 2011


Value Phase III - circa £410k Completed summer 2012


Reception Refurbishment - circa £40k Completed winter 2012

About Us

Bourne has been established since 1998 and provides a comprehensive service covering all those disciplines associated with a refurbishment contractor.


Since Bourne was launched, the business has expanded to meet the needs of clients, specifically into differing sectors of work from commercial refurbishment of retail and office space, refurbishment of industrial Buildings, interior fit out of office space to provide more flexible accommodation for the changing needs of an ever changing world, refurbishment of existing residential, and conversion of office, retail and ancillary spaces into much needed residential use.


The services we offer draw on specialist knowledge and the extensive experience of our own team of professionally trained and qualified staff, tradesmen and craftsmen who have worked with us over many years. With the ever changing needs of our clients and the changing procurement options Bourne can offer not just the traditional approach to contracting but "Contractor Design" where the JCT CDP form of contract is a preferred contractural format.


Bourne can provide consultation and advice on specific projects, including the preparation and presentation of surveys, technical reports, specifications and budgets for financial planning. We also offer a comprehensive design service, using both traditionally draughted and CAD systems to produce designs and layouts.


We pride ourselves on the quality of work we achieve, with a flexible approach. No job is too small, no problem insurmountable. We believe when you look at our client gallery and see the varied client base we have established over the last 15 years and repeat business we have received from these clients, hopefully this will encourage you to look further at our Company and invite us to become involved in a project of yours?
