Transforming a Derelict Chapel in London into Nine Saleable Residential Units
The Fairway Partnership acquired a derelict south London chapel with surrounding grounds in January 2007. Its objective was to convert the site and build modern, high performance residential units, achieving a margin in excess of 25%.
The site in Gipsy Hill, London Borough of Lambeth, had been derelict for over 10 years. It is situated in a conservation area and had planning limitations due to the buildings historic facade. The site was also infested with Japanese knotweed.
The client had a project management team but required specialist professional consultancy for this project. There was restricted access to the site that required negotiation too.
