Listed Building Works
A commercial property investment firm came to DMP with instructions to oversee the alterations of a ground floor retail unit and a proposed separation works to form a residential dwelling at first floor level, all within a listed building. The property was situated on the market square in the centre of Devizes, Wiltshire.
The DMP Solution
The solution lay in the separation of the ground floor area from the upper floors. Extending the retail accommodation through opening up the basement to form additional storage and accommodate the toilet facilities. A period staircase already gave self-contained access to the upper floors; which were converted to form a self-contained maisonette.
Planning and listed building consent were secured; DMP then managed the procurement and supervision of the construction work, through to the final handover of ground floor demise to a ew reail tenant who had taken on a new lease and the upper parts back to the landlord for onward marketing.
Works were completed on time and within the constraints of the clients budget given the property was in a Listed Building and Building Regualtions had to be achieved through careful design and selection of materials.
