Alium were engaged by the client to oversee the refurbishment of this large Arts and Crafts house by developer Enterprise Heritage. Acting as the Clients Representative Alium were heavily involved in both a full review of the initial design and specification as well as the specific design of the kitchen, bathrooms and pool. This involved working closely with the client not just on layouts and designs but also on the specification of ironmongery, paint finishes, flooring, tiling, fixtures and fittings.
Alium returned again to the property a couple of years later when the client decided to remodel the main sitting room and adjacent study to form a single large reception room. This involved removal of the main load bearing wall and chimney breasts between the two rooms as well as recreating a new working fireplace. This was also to be undertaken while retaining the chimney breasts and stacks in the rooms above. The work involved inserting two steel beams through the main house wall before jacking them up and onto new structural piers. These were introduced without any discernible interruption of ceiling or wall plains and prior to the relaying of a new oak floor.
More recently Alium have carried out another project to convert the previously uninhabitable basement into a play and storiage area. following the relocation of incumbent services the room was tanked and dry-lined with a new floor that provided the requisite fall for a new tank and pump system cut into the existing concrete slab. New mechanical ventilation and services were installed prior to the installation ofa drop-down desk and work area, wardrobe storage, box-seating and matching acoustic panelling and a new oak staircase with pull out storage.
