AOC go back to basics for Bolton Albert Halls

AOC Services: News

AOC Demolition Ltd were appointed by Willmott Dixon Construction to complete the strip out and structural alteration works to Bolton Albert Halls, the Grade II listed building which proudly stands in the heart of Bolton town centre.

Essential to this project was that the works must not impact on the building, so everything was completed by hand using traditional tools to ensure the preserved areas were unaffected. Working with extreme care and caution over 5 weeks, our specialist team removed the redundant fixtures and fittings, deconstructed internal walls and removed all materials produced from site for further segregation.

As a result of our initial works, Wilmott Dixon were able to transform the building into a revitalised, modern public venue, and went on to win Project of the Year in the £0m-£10m value category at the Construction News awards. The awards haven’t stopped there either, as since completion, the newly restored Halls have already won the Living Heritage Award from Welsh Slate for buildings that are important architecturally, historically or locally to a community.

We are proud to say that we were chosen for this project following a succession of projects completed in budget, in program and with zero harm for Wilmott Dixon, resulting in AOC being the preferred supplier.
