St John Street, EC1M London
5th floor flat in apartment block
High-spec refurbishment and internal remodeling
Architect Fred Collin designed and managed the refurbishment of his own property and selected Get Turner as his building contractor, partly because of our experience in renovating flats in the prestigious Barbican Estate. Working in this smart apartment block in Central London presented quite a challenge, as the only access to the flat on the fifth floor – for all building materials and the builders themselves – was a long flight of stairs.
The main living area was completely remodelled: all internal structural walls were removed, the remaining shell was structurally reinforced and the living areas, kitchen and bathrooms were all relocated.
The whole apartment was refurbished to an extremely high specification. We installed a new heating system, full electrical wiring, two hi-spec bathrooms and engineered wood flooring throughout. Our bespoke joinery team also made and installed built-in floor-to-ceiling cupboards and built-in storage in both bathrooms.
“Get Turner were a great team to work with on this project, and displayed a great ‘can-do’ attitude, working under difficult restrictions, achieving a good level of finish”
