As part of Gateville Group’s remit as a refurbishment and renovation contractor, we were set a challenge by Morgan Sindall to work on a pilot programme at a number of Grade II* Listed properties within a prestigious architectural estate in Rowley Way, St Johns Wood, London. Notably, it was the first post-war council housing estate to be listed.
This project forms part of an ongoing Better Homes Framework, delivering improvements, repairs and replacements to ensure these houses work as homes for the future. Listed buildings come with a number of extra controls and working conditions, under the statutory lists maintained by Historic England. A building is listed when it is of special architectural or historic interest considered to be of national importance and therefore worth protecting.
The pilot programme required us to refurbish the kitchens of both tenanted and void properties, and the need for top quality work and real craftsmanship was paramount. The works required removal of the old, tired kitchens and the installation of bespoke handmade kitchen cabinets and woodblock worktops. We also tiled the splash back and walls with some specially commissioned handmade tiles.
Success at Rowley Way
We’re delighted to announce that our client is pleased with our work, delivered within our “Cost, Time, Control” methodology; we continue to work hard to build lasting relationships with our clients. As a result of the successful pilot scheme, we have been awarded further contracts to deliver bespoke works on this Camden estate.
