Upgrade of the existing garages for an important charity.

The initital plan was to demolish the existing building and construct a new facility to provide a more suitable space to house vehicles and other supplies. Due to budget constraints this was not feasible, Wharton Construction proposed an alternative design that retained the existing building but still provided improved facilities.

We constructed laid a new floor slab with underfloor heating connected to an air source heat pump to allow an ambient temperature to be maintained - important for the storage of life-saving medical supplies. The walls were lined with insulated timber frame and plasterboard, new lighting and electrics were installed throughout along with a new roof (in the snow) and automated overhead doors. New hardstanding areas and drainage improvements were also completed as part of the project

We supported the charity by assisting with grant funding and a substantially reduced build cost.

It was enlightening to work with the mountain rescue team who provide a vital survice 365 days a year and is made up from volunteers.

Cleveland Mountain Rescue are currently raising money for future works at their base and also their regular running cost.
