Revitalising the heart of Bassetlaw

We complete a broad spectrum of different construction projects for local authorities each year and this year we were very pleased to be awarded the project of updating and renovating a number of Bassetlaw’s Historic Buildings including Bassetlaw Museum, Bassetlaw Council Building and Retford Town Hall.

Works carried out

Working with teams such as Bassetlaw Council is always a privilege, but also quite a challenge as it requires the sound co-operation of both teams to ensure that the construction site remains 100% Operational during their normal working hours, whilst completing the building works. In regards to this particular construction project we were tasked with creating a modern workspace by opening up the inside to create an open plan office space. This required our team to carry out demolition and installation works across three different floors to create the desired finish.

After completing the demolition and installation works in Bassetlaw Council Office Building to an exemplary standard, we were awarded the task of renovating the exterior paintwork for Bassetlaw Museum. Due to the age of this building all exterior paint works had to be completed with the use of MEWP, to ensure preservation of the building. We were instructed to prepare and paint all the external windows and paintwork, our skilful team happily completed this within the agreed time scale and restored the paintwork to its former glory.

In addition we also were proudly asked to take on the task of constructing and installing a bespoke replacement bar for Retford Town Hall. This particular project we completed in June 2018 and all parts of the bar were made to measure in our workshop and then fitted on site and included all plumbing works and spray varnish finishes.

What our customers say

“For almost 3 years I have been using QCS for all aspects of works here at the Ridings Shopping Centre. Their staff are always professional and adhere to all different requirements you would expect for a live shopping centre to have with vast amounts of customers/tenants in the area at any one time. Costs are always competitive and very reasonable considering the level of work being carried out on site is always to a high standard. We will and have recommended them to other centre’s within our portfolio.”

“After shopping around, I finally picked out QCS Ltd to replace my garage flat roof – rather large 7+ x 7+ Meters or around 50 Sq Mts., using an up-to-date Rubber compound over new wood which was 18mm thick – life 25 years. Took just a shade in time over what I though they would do it in, but there was a reason, quality, as the finished roof is fantastic with attention to detail, especially where corners etc. were concerned. Truly, I’m well satisfied, in fact ‘over the moon’”

John Armstrong

“I have used QCS several times for a range of different jobs from large scale house refurbishments to smaller maintenance jobs. The work has included advice on design and materials, plumbing, building work, electrical, decorating, tiling and at times a mix of everything! The quotes have always been competitive and the quality of service outstanding with fast response times where needed. Nothing has ever been too much trouble. I would not hesitate in recommending QCS to anyone looking for a high quality value for money service.”

“I have had a strong working relationship with QCS for many years and have always been happy with the quality of their work, the service provided and their attention to detail. Running a residential care home brings with it a particular set of challenges and QCS have always worked hard to ensure that the home is fully operational when work is carried out”
