Barnardo's Cottages Refurbishment

Project Insights

  • Contract Value £5,500,000.00
  • Duration 1.5 Years
  • Address Tanners Lane, Barkingside, Ilford, Essex, IG6
  • Development The sympathetic refurbishment and restoration of 12 Victorian period properties into residential properties for sale on the open market.

Project Description

The Victorian properties were originally constructed by Thomas Barnardo to house orphaned girls, overlooking green open space .  More latterly the charity had converted the properties into office space, and with the construction of the new Barnardo's head office, wanted to restore the properties to their former glory.

Critical Challenges

The units had to be refurbished in a partcular sequence in order to satisfy a number of restrictive factors.  Firstly, one of the units had been reserved as a day nursery for childcare and this needed to be completed first, in order for the nursery to move in time for the new academic year.  Secondly, the properties were accessed from a shared road, which served another seperate development site, and this road needed to be relaid with services and renewed as part of the works, whilst not affecting the refurbishment itself or the neighbouring site.
