Project Description

The clients of this project live in close proximity to our RIBA award-winning Max Fordham House. They followed the progress of the build and were impressed by how clean and tidy we kept the site and how we managed relationships with neighbours. We were the natural choice to build a replacement house for them on an equally challenging site on a one way mews with no outside storage space.

The existing house to be demolished is very cold in winter and hot in summer with a poor layout that does not make the most of the site. The clients approached Bow Tie Construction with planning permission for a house that had not been designed with thermal comfort and energy performance in mind. The construction cost was also outside their budget. We worked with KIN to improve and value-engineer the design, retaining many of the key features of the home while also designing out certain defects and reducing the build price. As part of this enhancement we installed the Tribus 4Walls system as an insulated airtight structure. It’s slim profile makes it ideal for London projects where land values are so high.

As is standard in all our new-build projects, we are designing the entire in house in 3D prior to going on site. This saves considerable time and reduces project risk as many key components and high value items can be sized from the model prior to breaking ground. The M&E design can be checked for any clashes.

  • “Rafael is particularly knowledgeable about green issues and we now have a kitchen/breakfast room which is easy and cheap to heat in the winter and cool in the summer.”

  • “It quickly became clear that Bow Tie want to do a good job, they want their work to be to a high standard, no problem is too small to discuss and identify solutions, they really want to get it right.”

  • “All the onsite employees were polite and meticulously tidy, doing their very best to fit in around us.”

  • “We had a lot of people stay over Christmas, some quite elderly, who were concerned about being in a big old house in Winter and being cold and we received a lot of complements on the comfort and easy warmth. There is no higher accolade than complements on your house from your mother-in-law!”
