Project Details

Chawton Hill was able to assist the client with the whole process to restore their fire-damaged home in Croydon, South London.


The house saw significant fire damage throughout that needed repairing. Many of the rooms needed to be stripped of all damaged materials and the necessary repairs made to make the space safe and habitable again. During the strip-out, we revealed the original Victorian brickwork and timber studs giving us a rare insight into the history of the building.
Chawton Hill was employed as the lead consultant, principal designer, and contract administrator. Our role saw the preparation of a detailed specification and drawings for the site. This included everything to rebuild the rooms from the framing and brickwork to the finishing touches.
Our role was also to get approvals from the loss adjuster and manage the whole tender process. The process involved obtaining competitive quotations from contractors and presenting the best options. The project saw some of our team in project management and contract administration duties as well.
Chawton Hill were able to deliver the project with no major complications and within budget. Thank you to the team and Landway Construction for their dedication to this project.
