Refurbishment of a Grade II Star Listed building designed by brothers Robert and James Adam for the Duke of Portland to enable modern use, together with construction of a rear extension with linking building.
Preserve and restore the main features of this historic building while at the same time ensuring it would be suitable for modern office occupation with 21st Century facilities.
Construct a new extension to replace the Mews frontage building at the rear of the site, together with a contemporary connecting building that respects and enhances the existing Listed building.
Manage all works within extremely restricted site access to both the front and rear of the building while meeting a demanding construction timetable.
We carefully considered all aspects of this challenging project and devised specific methodologies for the demolition of the rear building, the build and location of the tower crane and the retaining of all party walls, within an integrated schedule.
The routing of services required extensive investigatory work within the listed building in order to ensure that the existing heritage elements were not compromised during the creation of a highly serviced building suitable for modern use.
All works were completed on time and on budget and handed over to the total satisfaction of the Client, the Local Council and Conservation organisations.
This also enabled the Client to vacate the temporary accommodation acquired for decanting purposes and relinquish the short term lease as planned.
