Pangea renovation projects cover buildings of all sizes, this particular project is certainly on the larger end of the scale.

We are currently in the process of delivering a full turnkey solution for a property which we had managed under its previous owners. We are on track to finish the project by Autumn 2020.

To give you a sense of the scale, this Chalet in Brevent has 6 bedrooms, 6 ensuite bathrooms, a separate lounge and dining room, a kitchen, skiroom, laundry room, cinema room, gym, wellness area (including a sauna, hammam and shower room) and a terrace area which includes a spa.

The work required on the property is extensive, with a full strip back to shell and roof removal required. We are also working with architects on an extension, which requires both external excavation and damp proofing.

Looking ahead, the chalet will be kitted out with an entirely modern domotics system; a popular choice amongst our clients, which will control the lighting, climate, entertainment systems and appliances.

We are planning the installation of underfloor heating in all the bathrooms, new lighting in all rooms and a heated external driveway. Full plumbing infrastructure modifications will be needed as well, including hot/cold/waste/extract systems, a boiler and a fuel tank.

Work on the architectural interior will include the installation of new internal ceilings, walls (painted with some wood panelling) and timber/tiled floors. The 6 bathrooms will be divided into wetrooms and master bathroom suites. All the kitchen appliances and joinery, including storage units, seating area and office area will be installed with bespoke designs, alongside the aforementioned wellness area with hammam, sauna and wash facilities.

For the architectural exterior, all windows and doors will need replacing, and our client requires a new decked terrace including a hot tub. The property will have a beautiful slate roof and contemporary glazed extension structures. The area surrounding the property will require full hard and soft external landscaping, and we will also need to completely renovate an external garage, replacing the electrics, windows, roof and walls with render finish.

This is a large job and all together it will take 18 months. The bulk of the work will be completed between April 2019 and July 2020. The demolition is already complete, everything else will be split across four phases:

Phase 1 – The property will be waterproofed by Summer 2019.

Phase 2 – From Summer 2019, we will begin all internal refurbishments over 45 weeks.

Phase 3 – All garden landscaping, heated driveway installation, wood and stone exterior finishes will commence in Spring 2020 with completion Autumn 2020

Phase 4 – Finally in Autumn 2020 all furniture will be moved into the property in time for the winter season.

As you can see, this project will require us to employ a wide variety of our team’s skills. Our extensive experience navigating local planning regulations helps us keep to the schedule, whilst our tried-and-tested network of trusted contractors ensures we are able to stick to the budget and deliver the kind of premium quality finish our client requires.

As the project is ongoing, we’ll continue to provide updates on progress. In the meantime, if you’re planning a construction or renovation project in the valley don’t hesitate to get in touch. No project is too complex for our team.
