Clerk of Works services for the refurbishment of a Grade I listed house.

Appointed by Aequus Developments Ltd, BBA provided the Clerk of Works for the refurbishment of 23 Grosvenor Place, a Grade I listed Georgian House. Number 23 is one of forty-one houses, which were constructed between 1791-1819, designed by John Eveleigh with mid 19th and 20th Century alterations.

The building was used during the pandemic as part of the ‘everybody in’ directive, in which former rough sleepers were able to be housed in small flats. Following this success it was proposed to refurbish the 20 units, to provide 20 self-contained flats providing supported housing to help people with a history of rough sleeping to live independently.

The brief required BBA to carry out detailed weekly inspections providing Clerk of Works Reports and snagging lists. We monitored and managed these lists, liaising with the Contractor and the Client. Inspections were subsequently conducted weekly with reports produced per room, re-inspections were conducted if necessary, leading to sign-off when all snagging works are completed.

At BBA we care deeply about the community and the place that we live and work in, and it has been a privilege to be able to support this project, to ensure that 23 Grosvenor Place can be transitioned into a tiered supported housing scheme for former rough sleepers.
