Commencing in June 2018, the project encompassed the an industrial to residential conversion of a former printing works into 5 flats located on the fringe of Fareham town centre.
The conversion required an extension strip out of the aging print works and a major overhaul of the former house to the front previously utilised for the business’s office.
An intrusive and robust asbestos survey was instigated before the building works began with all asbestos identified carefully removed and disposed of by a specialist company.
A new roof and some structural works including the construction of a load bearing spine wall was required following the removal load bearing steels to make way for the new flats.
The project included an upgrade of the incoming utilities and a full re-wire and new plumbing throughout. The five new flats were complemented with clean crisp finishes and included modern kitchens with built in appliances; and showers within each of the one bedroom flat's bathrooms.
Floor finishes where provided throughout and were finished to a ‘move in ready’ standard.
DDS (UK) Consulting Ltd undertook the role of cost managers / quantity surveyors and contract administrator using our skilled team.
Delivered within budget this project has brought a welcome portfolio of 1 bed properties to the local area of Fareham/Gosport.
