“The owners of all apartments in this residential high-rise building decided to renovate their several rooms.”
Franklin Court London Renovation – This residential high-rise building’s residents decided to fix up each of their rooms.
The majority of the renovations required to be made in the kitchens and bedrooms of each apartment in the building. In addition, a new consumer unit needed to be installed, and the entire wiring system needed to be rewired.
British Builders won the competition as a consequence of their experience and aggressive pricing, which led to the project’s acquisition.
One of the responsibilities given to us was to speak with the apartment owners personally in order for the price team to measure the sizes of the rooms and evaluate the present state of the rooms that needed repair. The architect from our organization was given this assignment because it was so important to hear what the clients wanted. The pricing team was able to determine the cost of supplies and labor for each housing unit that needed repair by adhering to all contracts with clients.
After some time, our company was given the job, and as a result, we employed a managing manager to keep an eye on the building site and handle any problems that came up as the several flats were being renovated.
Our staff began working on the chores when they were all agreed upon, beginning with the removal of all the old furnishings. While the apartment was being renovated, the existing furniture in other rooms was covered with a protective film to protect it from dust and other forms of labor. Then, members of our crew removed the floor and wall coverings. Old plaster walls required considerable repairs that were challenging to complete.
To first level out any surface depressions and significant fractures, cement paste is applied. Leveling the walls, adding a coat of plaster, painting the walls, and installing tiles on the walls of the kitchen’s work area are the next steps. All cracks and hollows that appeared due to usage were filled in addition to repainting the ceiling, which had previously been primed and had the original coating removed.
Due to its resilience, environmental friendliness, and absence of arbitrary maintenance requirements, parquet is most typically put in bedrooms.
There were several stages to this process, including:
– This material required to be installed on a dry, flat concrete surface, thus the base was prepared.
– A two-component glue was used to adhere moisture-resistant plywood in a checkerboard pattern on top of the concrete covering to create a rough floor.
– After that, the plywood was primed and sanded to make sure the coating stuck well. The format for laying parquet was suggested by customers.
– After installation, specialized equipment was used to polish the parquet before colouring.
To ascertain the establishment’s current electrical status, our team performed an EICR. Our engineers carefully labelled and named each cable as they divided the control supplies to remove the current client unit without risk. Then a modern client was introduced. The team then checked the connections in each switch, attachment, and lightbulb in the office. performed a final electrical inspection and re-energized the buyer’s inactive unit.
Before installing the new kitchen appliances, our workers tested the new cabinetry. The kitchen cabinets were put together by following the instructions. The team measured, tagged, and labelled the wall to determine where to install each cabinet box. With the aid of a level, the wall cabinet fasteners were first fixed, and only then were the cabinets themselves fixed. The floor blocks were then installed and fastened.
The entire house had a general cleaning after the work on the room decorations was complete.
This Franklin Court London Renovation was completed on 12.10.2022, on time, within budget, and according to specifications, with wonderfully happy clients.
