Ulysses Road, West Hampstead
Build Cost: £108,000
This was a most challenging project. Lowering the cellar area in order to create a large habitable room for living space, utility room and bathroom in a period property.
The most challenging part was the underpinning of the existing structural walls in a sequence to ensure stability was maintained throughout. We also had to tank the new basement area and install a series of pumpsm and cut off valves to prevent water coming back up into the property in the event of a flood in the area.
A complicated lightwell was formed up to the line of the public footpath. The lightwell had a modern Velfac escape window system fitted with a galvanised platform and ladder in the event of an emergency.
In addition to this we also refurbished the kitchen area by adding some sliding folding doors, a new kitchen as well as new bathroom on the 1st floor.
The property was occupied throughout.
