This project involved the full conversion of an existing office block into 36 residential apartments, with a one storey extension..
Client: Quinn Developments
Date: April 2015
Demolition of existing building at 33 Wetherill Road and outbuildings to the rear of 23-33 Wetherill Road.
Erection of new building fronting on to Wetherill Road to accommodate 2no self-contained flats and a further building to the rear to accommodate 4no flats. As well as the exterior development we had to refurb the whole interior of the building, having to fufill the clients specification to the highest quality. An example of the interior refurbishments include:
- Installing a new German style kitchens
- Underfloor heating throughout
- Video intercom system.
- Karndean flooring
- Carpet in the bedrooms
- Mirrored bathroom cabinets
However even thought the project went to plan there was still some few issues in the early stages such as the the very steep gradient that the foundation of the site lay on. This mean that a greater amount of excavation of foundation was needed to make it stable. Another difficulty we had to overcome was the challenging task of installing the new drainage system on the new build due to the design of the building.
