It was a close run thing but, once again Colbre has beaten all the odds and have passed the finish line at Rathmell Hall in York. Despite being faced with a delayed start, Colbre were able to complete this conversion of a Grade II listed office building in the Historic centre of York into high end Student Accommodation comprising 62 studio apartments with en-suite facilities. With close monitoring of the programme with our key subcontractors W.M. Dyer Ltd and Parker Phs Ltd it has enabled Colbre to trim two weeks off the contract programme in time for the student invasion for York.

Well while most of the country is still waiting for Spring to arrive we have decided to Spring into action. Colbre is moving into bigger offices within the same building so all being well not much disruption to sites and services. Our telephone number and email has not changed so all the outside world should notice will be a short downtime around lunchtime 30th March while we move the server. We are hoping to get the main line diverted to my mobile so all will be good.
Well, a much need revamp of the website is now available for all to see and thanks to the patience of Daniel at ISSL Website Design in Bury we have finally gone live. The site shows a fresher image of Colbre with many of our more recent projects in full colour with photos from our local photographer Tony Jones.
We have recently started a large Luxury New Build development based in Lostock Bolton. Set in 15 acres of the grounds of the former Burnthwaite Hall, the development will provide Five new detached dwellings, each home is to be provided with its own individual character, through design and situation but all share a common theme of contemporary character and distinction
The first of the Queens Brewery Apartments are to be opened for viewing this weekend these are part of an on-going project within the existing foot print of the old Hydes Brewery. 20 apartments from the first two phases are ready for rent and are looking very desirable within this heritage setting.
