This delightful apartment in a Grade II listed mansion block facing onto Sloane Square was presented to us with the expected obligation to preserve a variety of features while incorporating three new bathrooms.
Dealing with drainage and plumbing in buildings of this kind is complex from a construction perspective, with floors needing to be raised in order to run waste away from the bathrooms adequately. With the flat facing onto Sloane Square, and all services located to the rear of the property, drainage runs needed to run a significant distance in order to exit and connect to a soil stack.
Planning the construction of this kind of work is difficult, with many decisions and solutions needing to be finalised on site as challenges are encountered. In addition, the needs and sensibilities of neighbouring flat owners and occupiers require careful management, as good-will may play a huge part in achieving successful solutions.
This kind of Central London residential construction management benefits greatly from experience, of which Buildburo has a very great deal.
