A series of residential properties requiring comprehensive refurbishment to meet market expectations.
Four cottages, totalling 232 sq m
2018 - 2020
Four two-storey Victorian cottages located in Grantchester required urgent and comprehensive renovation. The project was a long-term investment for the client with the intention to modernise and return the properties to a lettable condition, comparable with the Cambridge market.
The client needed to extensively refurbish several residences over two phases.
We carried out measured surveys, acted as lead designer for the refurbishment works and oversaw the pre-application and the production of a full planning application in the initial stages of the project. Following this, we procured the work and acted as principal designer and contract administrator to deliver.
We called upon various internal teams to ensure that the proposed designs would achieve planning permission as the properties were located within a conservation area. At each stage of the project, we presented the client with assorted budget options to align with their requirements.
