From offices to housing...
Client - Quorum Property Developments Limited
Value - £1,750,000
Sector - Residential, construction & external works
Although we normally specialise in interior design and refurbishment, we like it when our clients throw us a new challenge. With Metro House, a long-term client, Quorum, did just that!
We were tasked with working with CP Maybin architects to convert an existing office block in Sale into twenty-one flats. Residential was an entirely new field of work for us, but we liaised closely with the client, architect, homebuilder warranty provider (Checkmate), estate agents, and eventually the future managing agents to design and deliver a successful scheme.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about Metro House is that a lot of the purchasers do not realise that their flat was once someone’s office! We redecorated the external cladding and replaced the existing windows to remove the tired, office-like look that the building had. We then divided the space up into the twenty-one flats, ensuring that each was created to a high standard and specification to enable Quorum to maximise their profit.
We are very proud of the end result and the purchasers seem to be too!
