08 Apr New Project: St John’s Wood
As the leading basement experts in London and the home counties, we have been involved in hundreds of basement extensions and excavations. We have unparalleled knowledge and experience in this area of constructions and we can quite confidently say, nobody does it better!
We would love to publicise all of our projects, however, with most being residential we have to obtain permission to post photographs and it’s not always possible to do this, so when we can talk about the amazing basement projects on which we work, we do.
St John’s Wood is an affluent district in the City of Westminster made up of leafy residential streets and is best known for Lord’s Cricket Ground as well as Abbey Road Studios. The High Street is full of independent and boutique stores, cafes and restaurants.
It is regarded as one of the most desirable areas of London in which to live.
We achieved planning permission for the installation of a basement on the property a few years ago but the construction was held off until recently. The property is a listed building and unfortunately suffered flood damage from a leak in the upper floors and is now being fully refurbished.
As part of this whole-house refurbishment the opportunity has been taken to complete the planned basement work, and it’s going to be a beauty! The basement is approximately 250m2 in size with a rear courtyard featuring a spiral staircase leading up to the garden area.
We have been involved in the planning and design stages up to the completion of the shell and waterproofing. This shell was undertaken by our friends at Knowles Construction who completed the project on budget and ahead of schedule despite the Covid-19 pandemic, and all the restrictions and logistical obstacles that came part and parcel. We are now ready to handover to the fit-out contractor. We can’t wait to see the final outcome.
We have a few images from the shell of the basement. The shell will house a games/media room, gymnasium, steam room, workshop, office, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
