Project Description

Newbridge House -Donabate

Description of Works

Project Summary

Kelbuild are proud to have been involved in such a prestigious project, allowing us to bring our extensive knowledge and skill to the fore in addressing the key concerns and requirements of the client. Newbridge House is world renowned for history through the years since it was built in the late 1600’s and we are privileged to be the contractor to conserve and restore the front façade and spectacular roof to its former glory. From the outside, woks carried out are minimal, however, the measures taken to ensure this Georgian House will see another 200+ years allows us to handover this project knowing that we have done an excellent job in allowing that to happen.
