Kensington House



Market Sector: Commercial & Refurbishment

Client: Ashby Capital

Main Contractor: ISG

Bourne Rail & Special Projects successfully completed their redevelopment of 127 Kensington High Street which transformed the aesthetic of the existing building and dramatically improved the street-scape at this busy intersection in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Part of the existing building was demolished and replaced with a combination of steel framed and ​in situ concrete construction. Interface decking and precast floor slabs to the lift lobby were installed incorporating glass lenses and complex roof geometry. ​

As the majority of steelwork is exposed, final condition and appearance were vital to satisfy the architectural requirements. Much of the steelwork had to be erected in areas often inaccessible for a tower crane and required a variety of specialist techniques to be installed and completed on time.​ This required very detailed planning to ensure a safe and efficient site activity.
