- Contractor Total Homes & Developments Ltd
- Contract Value £2,300,000.00
- Duration 21 Months
- Address Foxley Road, Kenley CR8
- Development The design and construction of 19 shared-ownership apartments, set in the North Downs and constructed in the style of a Victorian Villa to match surrounding residences.
Malvern House is an impressive Victorian villa style low-rise apartment building, set within the leafy hills of Kenley on the London/Surrey borders.
The scheme utilises traditional materials including extensive use of Portland stonework to window surrounds and balconies, timber arched casement windows and a natural slate roof.
Energy-efficient measures have been carefully concealed within the development, such as enhanced external wall insulation and photovoltaic panels hidden at roof level.
We undertook extensive negotiations and value engineering with the contractor to meet our client's budget without compromising on the architectural style and dealt with challenging matters on site, including flooding within the neighbourhood.
We worked closely with the client and contractor pre-contract in order to extensively value engineer the scheme, working hard to retain the high quality finishes and materials associated with the planning consent for this scheme which the original developer intended to be for private sale.
Once on site, we also had to deal with complex contractual matters arising following extensive flooding to the site and surrounding area. We utilised our specialist knowledge of the contract to ensure a successful resolution which was fair to both parties whilst protecting our client's position.
