Project duration: 10 months
We tendered to Fidgens, a quantity surveying company who we have worked with extensively, to win phase 1 of the works at Oakhill and then worked extremely hard to make a good impression in order to give us the best possible chance to secure phase 2 of the project.
Working closely with Dry Architects and Fidgens we completely stripped the interior and carried out major structural works and alterations to the core structure and layout of the building. This also included major damp proofing works to the pool terrace area which had failed.
We then secured phase 2 and, again working with Dry and Fidgens, we started to form the vital base build that would service the finished interior. The interior designers then started to play a big part in the design and as weeks passed we all worked together to resolve difficult issues in relation to the design, budget, and above all the clients requirements. Throughout the project we came up against a number of challenging issues that required a very proactive attitude to the situation. We resolved all situations swiftly and came back to the design team with prompt, viable solutions.
As you can see from the pictures of Oakhill it was tremendously successful, with the client being extremely satisfied and stating that he would bring his clients to us for an honest, professional service.
We have already secured two more projectswith the interior designers on this project with a few very promising projects in the pipeline with the quantity surveyors and architects.
Gallery Interiors were appointed as the main contractors to refurbish this property to a high specification and standard. Throughout the project they demonstrated their professionalism and ability to react to unforeseen issues by proposing constructive solutions to problems. Their well-managed site and administration meant that the project was brought in on programme and within budget. Their enthusiasm in getting the finer details perfect resulted in the works being carried out to meet the required high standard of finish. We would have no hesitation in recommending them for similar projects and they are on our list of recommended contractors. We hope to be working with them in the near future.
