The Challenges

Abreast with a demanding dig out and underpinning we installed a significant amount of steel beams and columns to the floor/ceiling to provide structural stability to the walls above. After the installation of a full drainage management system, incorporating sumps and pumps, all wall and floor areas have been fully tanked with cavity drainage membranes.

A full fit out with new stud walling, insulation, plasterboarding, doors and windows, staircase, skirting boards was followed by the finishing decoration. New electrical and plumbing system was installed including new mega-flow system, radiators, bathroom appliances, electrical consumer units, power outlets and sockets and modern lighting.

Natural light and ventilation together with a secondary means of escape are provided by one lightwell to the front with security grill over and a second lightwell to the rear with steps to access the rear garden.
