Project Scope

  • Curtain walling
  • Atrium glazing and rooflights
  • Sliding doors and windows
  • Balustrading
  • Architectural metalwork

 

The extensive refurbishment and re-modelling of this grade II listed building on Hyde Park Corner will provide a number of high-end residential apartments in a highly sought after location.

Key Challenges

  • Logistically tight and very complex delivery strategy
  • Large span rooflights with glass beams built into the structure
  • Movable brise soleil screens to high level south facing screens

The Brief

Secured under a Pre-Contract Services Agreement, Colorminium have been commissioned by the Client and construction managers Mace to develop the design and delivery strategy to Stage 4 alongside architects Flanagan Lawrence.  A 16 week pre-construction period will see the design developed to a level of cost certainty before transferring to a traditional contract for the delivery.

Our Approach

The main façade to the Grosvenor Crescent elevation is being retained with the rear of the building being removed and re-built.  We will be required to work closely with the consultant team to develop the design, integrating with the concrete frame, stone mason and MEP contractors.

The design is aspirational and fitting for the location and has a mixture of glazing elements, both internally and externally.

The Result

The start date for our elements of work is mid-2016 with completion in early 2017.
