Belgrove Blog- Update 2

First Belgrove Place must be stripped back to its 19th century roots. Starting with the safe demolition of the old pharmacy.


While demolition is typically fast and messy, it’s not necessarily mindless and uncomplicated. There’s actually quite a bit to know about demolition; beginning without a clear strategy can have significant safety repercussions throughout the process.

Together with our Health and Safety advisor we implemented thorough Risk Assessments, Safe Working Procedures and a detailed Lifting Plan. Our approach to this demolition project ensured the safe removal of the roof trusses. Then the brick walls were painstakingly taken down by hand and cleaned for reuse later on in the project.


Throughout the life of the building many additions had been made, although they were of use to the hospital they are no longer fit for purpose, over the coming months these too will be demolished. But first we must remove the unused chimney brick by brick.


Over the course of two weeks the chimney has been taken down, many of the bricks have now been salvaged and will be reused in other parts of the restoration.


   This building and the area around it is completely unique, that is why it is so special to us.
Our expertise as developers is to recognise the full potential of a site and see what it lends itself to be.
As well as creating contemporary new homes, we want to create a product that is sympathetic to the building.
  We work with our architect & the buildings fabric, to show us what it is capable of before deciding how we will arrange the composition of the apartments and houses In this instance we have revised the layout to be led by Townhouses rather than Apartments which is more harmonious with the building & its soothing sense of space.”   

"To fully appreciate the stunning proportions of this building you’ll need to step back."

Chris Board, Project Manager for Lanswood adds: 

As ‘historical caretakers’ it’s important we do the building justice.  Every element of a project like this is a challenge.  No one room is the same and therefore every new property we create will be individual.  Even the scheme’s name is created by combining parts of the site’s history and giving it a modern twist.”
