dcsimg Refurbishment - Ramboll UK Limited


Ramboll has wide-ranging expertise in the refurbishment sector. New buildings add only one percent to the building stock each year, so the remaining 99 percent require regular refurbishment to meet the ever-changing demands of society. Working closely with clients, we ensure existing building refurbishments are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

Roskilde Cathedral is on the World Heritages List. Ramboll has designed the new roof construction for the historical cathedral.

Update and up-value

Our clients’ aspirations within the refurbishment sector vary as widely as the solutions we offer and include improving marketability, retrofitting sustainable solutions, renovating, remodelling and adding floor space. Ramboll’s tailored approach to each individual project is key to achieving excellent results.

Our response is to study the history and condition of each building so that adaptations are informed by value. We thereby allow the buildings themselves to inspire our decisions. With the existing building’s potential fully understood, we rigorously evaluate the options for modifications and alterations in order to generate comprehensive value-based solutions.
