Project Description

Haunch of Venison Gallery, Mayfair

Project Details

Project: Gallery refurbishment and development
Client: Canadian and Portland Estates Plc
Value: £3M

The Haunch of Venison Gallery refurbishment at New Bond Street involved major structural alterations to the existing building. This included demolition works, piling, basement excavation and tanking, steel framing, the installation of a new lift shaft, a new glass atrium roof and new external roof coverings and roof lights. The common parts of Nelson House also required major renovation.

Forcia’s track record of working on confined sites, demonstrating good neighbour relationship skills during major building works ensured the success of the project.

New internal finishes throughout Nelson House (Grade 1 Listed Property) and the common parts included suspended plasterboard ceilings, fire protection to all steelwork, staircases, decorations and carpets and toilet accommodation.

Externally, repairs and alterations were made to existing elevations. Services including EDF services, gas, drainage and a new lift were also installed within Nelson House.

“Forcia installed temporary support works to allow the roof, floor and interior of the property to be completely removed. A new basement was excavated with only the facade and party walls remaining.”

Owing to the fact that 103 New Bond Street is located above the proposed Crossrail development, we encountered considerable disruption. However, in conjunction with TfL and the client team, we dealt with all problems arising from this with minimal delay or disruption.

Forcia overcame all of the challenges posed by the development and worked hard to leave the project in the optimum state for the future fitout. The project was successfully completed on time and within budget.
