Albion Terrace Renovation Project
Located in Whitby, this seven bedroom Victorian Townhouse was in need of an impressive renovation to bring it back to its former glory.
The renovation aim was to create a holiday home in the heart of Whitby. The client wanted to keep the period feel and charm whilst also putting a modern and fresh twist on it. The plans made by WOODSmith incorporated as many traditional features as feasibly possible given the amount of work required.
Steel & Structure
The build process on this project was complex given the mechanical steel design. Multiple removals of structural walls meant steel structures were used throughout to manage the stress factors of the building. Putting the steel aside, the build process was simple and was completed from the top to the bottom and out.
The property benefitted from new windows throughout. Working alongside an eight week lead time, to manage time effectively, preparations were made to the walls but the window reveals were left until the windows had been fitted.
Care, Consideration & Changes
The property spans three impressive stories, and with installation plans for all new UPVC sliding sash windows and a new balcony, the consideration was made to make sure contractors were suitable to work on the scaffolding whilst also carrying out the required risk assessments.
A minor change was made to the 3rd floor en-suite shower. The construction team became aware of the lack of pressure to the third floor due from the ground floor boiler. With this in mind and after further discussions with the client, a Mira Décor Electric shower was installed; negating the worries and potential problems of water pressure, but also providing a working hot shower for the guests in the situation there was ever a problem with the central heating system in the future.
Seven bedrooms, four bathrooms and a full refurbishment was completed. Modern and light design opened up the space to create the perfect holiday home experience; exactly what the client wanted.
The project ran on a 14 week programme which was achieved and WOODSmith hit the programme for completion.
The finish was outstanding and the property has gone on to be one of the best holiday homes in Whitby. Visit Albion Terrace, click here to find out more.
