Works are progressing at pace at Richmond Hill where we are restoring, refurbishing and extending a tired 150 year old Grade II listed building.
We have had to carefully navigate through the stringent planning and conservation requirements of the local authority throughout the construction process – discharging the many detail planning conditions.
The new basement extension has been excavated and constructed using a special structural walling system that is both economic and quick to construct.
The new side extension has been built by mixing bricks recycled from the previous extension we demolished, and bought-in London stock bricks. This gives the extension a more traditional appearance that ties in with the existing building.
To the rear, the steel frame for the lightweight extension has been installed and we are now looking forward to the arrival of the feature glazed roof lantern and elegant aluminium framed doors.
Internally, expert craftsmen are reinstating the original plaster cornices that were lost sometime in the past, the original fireplaces are being restored and the existing plaster walls and ceilings repaired with traditional methods.
