The August Feeling
Can you believe it has been a whole month already since our last blog? The summer months are truly flying by and we have lots to talk about! Currently, we have 5 fantastic projects on the go… all of which are at different phases of build and our amazing team are loving the variety and challenges each one brings each day! So let’s start with one of my personal favourites and busiest sites at the moment, Colindale Avenue.
Our Colindale site is well underway and we have just completed the all-important installation of the sprinkler systems within each flat including the bedrooms, living/dining rooms and kitchens. Safety is paramount to us here at M & Sons and now this is complete, the ceilings are being closed and are ready to be plastered to perfection.
The bricklaying has begun and is solid as a rock and we are especially pleased to have completed extension works to the layout of the 4th floor! Bigger is definitely better! Quite importantly Fibre networks and Openreach have been on-site to conduct their surveys…. I mean could you honestly imagine a world without Wi-Fi?
At Torriano Mews our complete conversion of an old office block into luxurious high spec apartments is going grand! The stunning show apartment has been styled down to every last detail and is ready for those eagerly anticipating a viewing appointment. We are also very close to reaching the closing stages on all the units, which is a great achievement and has really boosted the team morale on site. Hard work always pays off! Lastly, we are always keeping sustainability in mind and the solar panels have been securely fitted on the roof. Now, all we need is some sunshine!
I’m coming up!
So you may remember from our July blog that our Sherwood Road luxury family home, had just had the ground floor beams and blocks fitted…Well in true M & Sons style, we are on a roll and the ground floor slabs are complete and the vertical columns to the 1st floor are being constructed with a beam & block structure. The bricks and mortar are also all stacked up on-site and ready for this big build!
I’m ready for my makeover…
So at our 152 Harley Street Day Clinic Project the pipes and cables are in, so all of the 1st fix plumbing and electrics have been successfully completed. We have been busy at M & Sons HQ sourcing a range of high spec and stunning fixtures and fittings, so watch this space for updates on gorgeous lighting and so much more!
For those hot and humid summer months, we have installed a high-quality AC unit to ensure optimum comfort for the staff and clients of the clinic. The chippies have been chipping away and the bathrooms are now tiled to a T and the vinyl flooring is currently being laid.
And another one…
We are ecstatic to officially announce that we have secured a contract on an exciting new site…Temple Fortune! We cannot wait to get our teeth stuck into this project which consists of a block of luxury apartments complete with a communal roof terrace. The initial design meeting has been conducted to discuss roles and the building design and we have many more lined up.
Inevitably the holiday season is here as with many industries and many of our essential workers have gone on holiday or will be very soon. They will be greatly missed but we understand the importance of them resting, recharging and having all-important quality time with their families. However, we have effectively managed this by pro-actively planning our workforce and carefully managing how we allocate our subcontractors.
Have a wonderful summer break and we look forward to catching up with you in September!
