Commercial Project – Chelsea, London, UK

Today as promised in our in August 2018 article, we are going to discuss one of our commercial developments in Chelsea, London, UK which is currently coming to completion on site. Regarding the initial stages of the project from RIBA stage 1 to 4, including pre-application, planning application, tender pack production, tendering and appointing a contractor took five months.

The project involved a full refurbishment, relocating all the plant equipment to the rear of the property, adding a dormer and side extension at roof level and converting inaccessible flat roof space into a usable terrace, all within a RIKC conservation area. The construction budget was £650,000 and took seven months to complete on site.

LSY Engineering Consultants Ltd worked on this project in partnership with Orfali & Orfali, an architecture and internal design practice in London. LSY Engineering Consultants Ltd were the civil and structural engineers of the project while Orfali & Orfali undertook the following roles:

  • Architects;
  • Lead designer; and
  • Contract administrator.
