Extensive refurbishment of office completed

We are pleased to report that the extensive refurbishment of our office building at 37 Kirk Wynd, Kirkcaldy has now been completed. The "skin" of the 200 plus year old building has been largely replaced with an emphasis on reinstating aspects of the building into its original state. One of the gable walls was partially rebuilt, the harling on the building replaced and all of the windows and guttering refurbished. The decorative features were also overhauled and re-fabricated where necessary.

Charles Wood & Son have occupied this building for over 50 years and we hope that with the refurbishment it will remain wind and watertight for at least another 50 years.
