The brickwork alterations and inclusions are due to complete this week with roof slating commencing this week also. Internal partitions are largely complete with M+E first fix underway.

The project at Hewer Street comprises a complete redevelopment of a former funeral home into new residential accommodation for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea as part of the RBKS’s New Homes Delivery Programme.

The existing plot was a two-storey brick building built in the late 19th century with two south-facing projecting gable ends. The project is the partial demolition of the existing building, and redevelopment to provide 20 residential units over three and four floors.

The development will retain the key historical related architectural design features. This includes the gable features of the roof and the internal courtyard. The small gabled Chapel will also be restored to form the entrance of the development. In relation to the demolition proposals, the proposed development will retain some of the existing façades and reuse materials in the restoration of the building.

The retained facades have been extensively restored with new windows and complete lime repointing. We have reused 25,000 bricks salvaged from the existing building with the remaining being salvaged from elsewhere in London.

All flats are gas free, with the provision of air sourced heat pumps and MVHR ventilation.

On completion in November the building will be occupied by 20no. residential units.
