The Brief

We have worked on numerous confidential super-prime refurbishment projects in listed and historic buildings in and around London, including this project undertaken in a large residential house within the Grosvenor Estate conservation area.

The Client’s brief required significant re-modelling and upgrading of the existing 1920s property to bring it up to modern standards without altering the feel of the much-loved family home. This included a lowering of the basement level in order to provide a more generous floor to ceiling height, creating space for new gym and leisure facilities at this level along with improved catering facilities.

The Challenge

Several challenges had to be overcome in order to bring the project to a successful completion. The original contractor had been brought on early as the design was being developed, for programme reasons. However, this Contractor ceased trading at a relatively early but critical point in the programme. Jackson Coles were closely involved in the implementation of an alternative procurement strategy in order to minimise knock-on delays to the overall programme. 

A contract with the incumbent basement subcontractor was negotiated to complete the basement works, this also allowed time for the design of the finishes to be completed. This allowed time for a fixed price contract to be subsequently negotiated with a replacement specialist fit out main contractor, who completed the works on a traditional basis.


The Outcome

The completed project saw the clarity and beauty of the building’s original design really brought back to life. The quality of the finishes and workmanship were of the very highest standards throughout, and included specialist conservation works to the timber panelling and other historic finishes in key rooms and on the main staircase.
