Greendale was awarded the challenging task of converting a landmark former bank premises in the heart of Westbourne, into a clean shell for Pizza Express to fit-out.
The project included the evacuation and removal of around 300m3 of earth from the basement to give workable ceiling height for food storage, toilets and back office facilities. Open areas were created internally by taking out load bearing walls and piers, then installing structural steelwork to support the refurbished residential accommodation above.
The logistics of undertaking the project in such a busy and confined urban location were complex, but Greendale successfully completed the project on time and within budget.
