Client Brief

Tenilon UK is a company specialised in the professional management of Real Estate investments.

This particular building was fully refurbished in order to transform the building into a 7 apartments to be used as temporary accommodation for tourists visiting London.

Lopez Landa got appointed as main contractor of the complete refurbishment of this property located in the Bayswater area in London.

THE PROJECT

The building had had a number of light refurbishments over the years;

However, it had been mostly superficial and aesthetical works. One of the main challenges in this building was the condition of the plumbing and heating installations, which had signs of having been turned off for several years.

Our specialist contractors carried out an initial validation of the various systems in order to identify the viability of the current plumbing, heating and electrical installation.

It was then when it was detected that the current plumbing installation was insufficient to provide a constant service to all apartments in peak times of use.

After looking through several options for the system in order to find the most efficient solution, our specialist plumbing contractor commenced the works onsite, stripping out the entire plumbing installation and distributing a whole new system throughout the building.

As it is common in buildings throughout London,

the strip out works unveiled a number of structural and constructive issues issues in the building that had to be addressed throughout the project, from floor and joist replacements to structural reinforcements of various structural elements, our team continued to progress through the building trying to address all these pathologies in the most cost-effective way.

The architect in charge of the re-design of the property created apartments that made the most of the limited available space, creating two-bedroom apartments throughout the top floors of the property, with either 1 or 2 bathrooms and a further two one-bedroom apartments in the basement of the property.

To achieve this, our team had to try several configuration until the areas created were optimum to ensure all elements fitted within the space, together with the distribution of all services through the services riser.

Once the core constructive elements were completed, our team focussed all efforts in ensuring that all finishes were completed to the highest standards.
