Two weeks ago it was a £4.3m office conversion on Wardour Street. Now ISG has been awarded an £8.3m residential conversion scheme in the Bayswater area of London.
The latest scheme sees ISG deliver 12 high specification apartments within three existing five-storey townhouses in Craven Hill Gardens, as well as the construction of three new luxury mews properties to the rear of the building. With the internal structure of the townhouses already demolished, ISG will retain the two façades of the original building and install more than 100 tonnes of structural steelwork to provide a solid foundation for the new apartments.
Adjoining properties on either side will be underpinned as part of this structural phase, and the contractor will also extend the existing mansard roof and provide additional roof terraces to enlarge accommodation for the two luxury penthouses. The three four-storey mews properties will be traditionally constructed and designed to blend with the existing built environment, featuring white stucco plaster and masonry façades with pitched tiled roofs.
As part of the project, ISG will clean, repair and remodel the façade of the existing building to create a single communal entrance, as well as installing two new residents lifts and creating external car parking facilities. The project is scheduled for completion in November 2013.
ISG Fit Out divisional managing director Grahame Roberts said: “ISG’s growing reputation within the exclusive residential market has been forged through our innovative approach to each project and meticulous attention to detail. Working collaboratively with some of the UK’s finest architects and interior designers has provided us with an enviable portfolio of successfully completed projects.”
