Project Description

Douro Place, Kensington

Project

Project: Residential basement construction
Client: Lonprop Ltd
Value: £1.4M

This project consisted of major structural works to the property including demolition of the rear extension and garden, underpinning, piling including TAM installation in steel cages for permeation grouting, basement excavation and the structural construction for the basement and lower ground floor while the existing property was being temporarily supported.

Careful and methodical planning was required given the difficult access to the site.

The property did not remain operational during the construction process however the flat above it remained accessible throughout the project and special considerations had to be taken into account.

The site was delivered in shell and core condition by Forcia, ready to be fitted out at a later stage of the works.
Despite the hurdles and complications found due to the nature of the site the project was completed both on time and under budget.
