Award-wining renovation Grade 2 listed project: The Old Post Office in Lewes
Back in 2019 we worked on a commercial renovation project for the Old Post Office in Lewes. The conversion of a Grade II listed former post office building into offices for local business was designed by ABIR Architects of Hove and we were contracted to renovate the sash windows by Cheesmur of Lewes. Originally two separate buildings and dating from mid 16th-century, the conversion provided offices, design development studios, meeting and conference / exhibition space, and kitchens. The project was awarded as a category winner for the ‘Commerical Awards’. by Sussex Heritage Trust
