Commercial To Residential Conversion Havant, Hampshire


Our journey with this project began when we first visited the property, which had recently been purchased by our client for development.

After a rigorous inspection of the building, we highlighted numerous concerns with the structural integrity of the building, as well as the scope of the build-ability of the proposed project as a whole.

This property was in need of some serious TLC and had clearly not been adequately modernised since the day it was built.

Therefore the work needed to transform this building comprising of a part residential, part commercial building into 6 high quality 1-bedroom flats was fairly daunting…

Firstly, a thorough strip out of the building was conducted, removing all blown plaster, existing internal walls, ceilings, fixtures and fittings, in order to take it back to its raw state.

Steels were then installed to ensure the structural security of the property, allowing the development of the flats to begin.

Stud walls and new stair cases were constructed and installed, forming the “carcass” of each flat, at which point the project really started to take shape.

Once the dividing walls were built, the builders began installing all the insulation.

The plastering was completed and the major job of installing the new kitchens and bathrooms took place.

At this point, the flats began starting to turn into somewhere people would like to live.

The decorators arrive and begin work.

All the flats were given paint, skirting boards and architraves, window boards, new windows, new doors and lighting.

The whole project rapidly appears closer to completion – an exciting prospect!

The building has now been fitted with an all new slate tile roof, new gutters and soffits.

The external faces of the property have also been being rendered and decorated, which brings the entire project together.
