Corramore’s new company office was constructed by converting an old 1888 barn into a modern office space. The completed site includes a reception area, board room, kitchen, printer room, staff toilet and shower facilities and an anaerobic digester to provide sustainable fuel.

Heritage Restoration and Renovation
The brief was to create a new, functional modern office space to serve as Corramore’s head office. The project involved the conversion and renovation of an old country barn dating back to the 1800s. To preserve some of the original features of the building, materials like red brick corbel detailing and original stone were repointed and savoured.
250 year old Bangor Blue slates were also stripped and reused with a modern trocal-covered warm roof. A glass-fronted reception area was added to the original L-shaped barn to capture natural light and open views of the surrounding green countryside. As a result, the space is a thoughtful blend of modern and heritage construction techniques.

To align with the company’s focus on environmental construction practices, an anaerobic-digester was also added to the site to generate heat from organic materials which is feed back to the national electricity grid.
The project was completed in 2021 and comprises the new office building, two car parks to the front and rear for staff and visitors including disabled-access parking and Eco charging points. There is also a storage and haulage area to the rear for deliveries and lorries to facilitate our procurement and transport department.
