Pilot Conversion Scheme for Westminster

Home>News>Housing News>Pilot Conversion Scheme for Westminster

Our projects team are undertaking a pilot conversion and refurbishment scheme for our client Westminster City Council.

The property – which is currently unoccupied and comprises two flats – is to be converted into a much-needed 4-bedroom family home. We have already commenced work on the house which is on Fourth Avenue London W10 in the Queens Park Conservation area.

With new solar panels, ventilation and heating systems as well as double glazing and insulation, the conversion project will produce a home that is not only comfortable and spacious but will be also economical and sustainable for our client and the residents. This conversion project commenced in September and will finish in December 2023. It is valued at £200,000 and is part of our ongoing total asset management programme with Westminster CC.
