Grade II Listed Building Conversion – Staunton Properties
The former ‘Stuckeys bank’ was acquired by our client, in the Autumn of 2018, for mixed-use refurbishment. The former bank is Grade II listed and we were appointed to assist in obtaining listed building consent for various minor works.
This included the preparation of scheme design and outline specification to submit for building regulation approval via an approved inspector.
How We Helped
Listed Building Consent with Chartered Surveyors
Listed building consent is required for any works that would have a potential impact on the historic fabric of a Grade II Listed building. We supported Staunton Properties in agreeing on the extent of enabling works and any listed building consent required.
Plus the principle of future works of conversions, specifically for an incoming tenant on the lower floor intending to fit out the space to their requirements and standards.
Fire Strategy for Multi-Tenancy Building
One of the initial challenges was agreeing on an appropriate fire strategy for a multi-tenancy building that also had spaces reserved for flexible future use. Both of these aspects had to be taken into consideration and informed the scope of the work.
Our team completed Fire Risk Assessments and supported Staunton Properties in developing a fire safety strategy to best suit the requirements of both the lettable office/studio space and the ground floor’s flexible future use.
