2017 – A Year in Review
2017 marked the 25th anniversary for Quadriga Contracts. With 25 years of hard work and investment in our people, we have developed a strong team who have completed diverse restoration projects throughout the country and with it a reputation for quality.
In September Quadriga launched ‘Quadriga City’, based in Manchester city centre. From our Manchester office, our team of specialists take care of our clients in the city and the fantastic buildings they are responsible for. In late November, we celebrated Quadriga City’s launch, welcoming over 100 clients to the Brass Club at Hotel Gotham. Our new office puts us at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse and provides an easily accessible and convenient service for our clients.
This year we have proudly worked on many notable projects, to include;
Blackpool Tower Ballroom – works were undertaken at the Grade I listed Blackpool Tower to restore the ornate plastered ceiling in early 2017. New plaster was cast from moulds taken from the original plaster features and paint was mixed on site to match the original 1897 colours. Strictly Come Dancing fans may have seen a glimpse of our work on BBC 1.
Hanover Building, Manchester – As part of the heritage package awarded to Quadriga, a range of works have been undertaken at Hanover which forms part of NOMA. A clean using Arte Mundit was completed on the marble at the building and bespoke handmade tube lined tiles have been created to match the original. Works have also included exposing and restoring flooring, terrazzo restoration and ornamental and fibrous plastering.
Knowsley Hall – We lovingly restored the timber flooring in the Stucco ballroom at the Grade II* listed building, which forms part of the Knowsley Estate. Works included timber repair, floor sanding and polishing.
