The Restoration of The Coal Exchange.

Preserving the DNA of The Coal Exchange building has been at the forefront of the restoration process. Having suffered tremendous damage over the years, The Coal Exchange had been left in a state of severe disrepair. Serious damage had spread throughout the grand exterior, luxurious interior and affected even ancient supporting structure.

The process to restore this beautiful heritage building began in 2016 when a team of skilled workers experienced in this sort of project, set about preserving the landmark for future generations all whilst ensuring its use as The Exchange Hotel would wholly celebrate the interesting history of The Coal Exchange.
