THE BRIEF
PBC was appointed by Hampshire Trust Bank to Project Monitor the redevelopment of an old care home in Fortis Green, East Finchley for residential use, and the construction of a number of additional new dwellings.  The development required the conversion of the existing building into three, luxury town houses as well as the addition of a contemporary, single, detached dwelling and six, three-bedroom duplex apartments on the site.

THE CHALLENGES
Conversion of the existing building into the three town houses presented significant challenges for the team, as new basements were required to house kitchen, dining and living areas as well as an enclosed patio garden.  Extensive temporary support work was needed to safeguard the stability of the existing structure while the basements were formed.  Further structural alterations to the upper floors also had to be carefully undertaken to create the required, high-specification contemporary spaces.

With all of the construction work and external landscaping of private and communal gardens now completed, the properties are on the market and a number have already been sold.  For more information visit www.thefortiscollection.com.
