We are often approached by new owners of properties in the Chamonix area who are seeking a complete renovation service. In these cases, such as this project in Les Nants, we are able to draw on our full range of services. Here, we initially set about improving the infrastructure of the building, before completely refitting the interior. As you can see, the end result was a fantastic finish and we continue to keep in close contact with the client to provide ongoing management services.
For many who are looking to improve a property in the Chamonix valley, especially those who do not permanently live nearby, keeping on top of a renovation project is nigh on impossible. This is why we take the reigns, providing a primary point of contact on the ground and overseeing the entire project from start to finish. For this particular property, we worked closely with an interior design team, providing consultation on the structural requirements needed to realise the client’s vision and then turning those designs into reality.
To begin with, we performed a thorough survey in order to create a detailed specification for the renovation. Our experience working on properties in various states of repair means we can quickly identify the necessary work needed early on. In this case, a partial electrical rewire was called for, as well as the installation of a new central heating system. These upgrades would be necessary to meet the intended rental demands the Client is seeking and to enable adequate power supplies for new sauna and spa installations in the property.
We’re well acquainted with the technical requirements of luxury facilities such as the sauna fitted here; it’s always a popular feature in an iconic skiing area as there’s no better way to relax after a day on the slopes!
Our aim is always to realise the full potential of a property, ensuring that the work we carry out will be of the highest standard. In order to achieve this, we work with a number of selected specialists who have a proven track record. By making sure we plan properly during the early stages we avoid surprises later in the project. Every property we work on is built to last, which can save significant amounts of money in the long run.
With onsite management throughout to coordinate and monitor all aspects of the project, we can keep a close eye on progress and keep our clients fully informed as the project progresses. Not only do we handle the organisation of sub-contractors and the sourcing of material, we carry out thorough audits at key stages of the project which ensures that even the most ambitious projects are delivered on time and on budget.
Our work doesn’t just end with the completion of the project. We value that our customers continue their relationship with us, often trusting us with the ongoing maintenance and care of their property. For many who are not native to Chamonix, we are able to take the stress out of upkeep; from dealing with local bureaucracy and setting up the wi-fi, to mowing the lawn and getting things ready for the next arrival. We’re able to perform a seamless transition from finishing a refit to maintaining the property to the same standard for years to come, as well as providing a friendly, welcoming face for the next visit.
“We started working with Pangea to renovate and manage an old chalet that we purchased six months ago. They have helped us to transform it completely into what is now a bright, modern and lovely chalet. We are hugely impressed with the finish of the works and the warm and professional level of service they have provided both on the renovation and on the property management. Working with them has saved us a tremendous amount of hassle and has always been a complete pleasure. We look forward to continuing our relationship for a long time.”
