GROVESNOR CRESCENT (FOR PELL FRISCHMANN)
The refurbishment of this Grade2 listed building into an exemplar of luxury living presented several engineering challenges including the construction of three levels of basement within a site bordered by equally sensitive structures.
Due to the historic importance of the building, we prioritised the re-use of the existing building fabric where possible rather than advocating their wholesale replacement with new structures. Cast-iron beams which were contemporary to the building’s erection, were diligently surveyed for damages and justified for modern loads. Targeted strengthening with carbon fibre reinforcement were applied where necessary.
