This Grade II* listed building on Wilkes Street is located off Fournier and Princelet Streets in the heart of Spitalfeilds. It is part of a charming set of streets of period houses and enjoys proximity to the facilities of Spitalfields Market and Brick Lane.
The property was rewired and refurbished throughout with new openings created to allow for more light and better movement however the majority of the works took place below ground. Here, major excavation, underpinning, Delta tanking and ground water/soil pump works/installations were required in order to house the movie room, gym, utility room and bathroom.
A key contribution was made by the Sonsino Turcan project management team who offered an alternative drainage system design which reduced the scope of the structural works required. This translated to a £20k reduction of the contract price.
