New Luxurious Residential Apartments

The Project Manager was responsible for the successful delivery of 66 residential units on the banks of the River Thames.

The development comprised 2 newly constructed blocks and a complete refurbishment of an existing block.

All apartments in this landmark location were luxuriously appointed with high spec fittings and fixtures.

The scope for the 66 residential apartments also included significant structural amendments to occupied buildings including facades and extending existing slabs.

The Challenges

Notable challenges to overcome on this project was to construct the Basement carpark along the banks of the River Thames. There were challenging logistics within the crowded London CBD and to ensure that the building was below the maximum height permitted to allow sight lines from the River Thames to St Paul’s cathedral.

The Solutions

Works were carefully scheduled and planned around crowds and road access limitations. Careful design and engineering ensured the height of the building didn’t encroach on the view.

The Outcomes

The project successfully delivered 66 luxuriously appointed residential apartments along the banks of the River Thames. All apartments were fitted with high end fixtures and furnishings.
