Background

Conversion of a circa 54,000 ft² existing office building into high quality residential units.

This six storey red brick and steel building has undergone many transformations in its life time, playing host to a booming underwear factory, commercial office block and dance and recording studios. Linton House Developments are now regenerating the existing office block into 50 high end residential apartments, complete with penthouse extensions.

Our Role

Stace has been appointed to provide Project Management, Cost Management and Employers Agent services for the conversion of a circa 54,000 ft² existing office building into high quality residential units.

The construction of a circa 9,000 ft² new build penthouse structure will contain an additional seven penthouses, complete with associated support steelwork. It will incorporate full height curtain walling and achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.

Above the penthouse will be seven glass boxes or ‘winter gardens’, also comprising full height curtain walling. There will be a roof terrace, brown roof and photovoltaic cells. Internally, the level of specification will allow these winter gardens to be habitable spaces and will therefore include lighting, power and comfort cooling.

Our Impact

Appointed from the outset of the project, Stace provided a full scope of Monitoring Surveyor services. These started with a complete review of the development documentation (to ensure that the conditions precedent within the facility agreement had been fulfilled and captured within our initial report) prior to drawdown of the banks funds. This was followed by monthly interim reporting throughout the development, identifying any risks posed to the client’s security prior to each subsequent drawdown.
