Murray Birrell has completed work at a Grade II listed Victorian warehouse conversion in one of our favourite areas of London, the Shad Thames area of Bermondsey on the south bank of the River Thames.
We were instructed for Contract Administration by Shad Thames Management for the replacement of ceilings and decorations to the common parts at Christians Warehouse, a mixed-use residential space, which was previously an industrial building.
Murray Birrell has worked on many projects in this part of London over the years, so we understand the conservation area sensitivities, special architectural specifications as well as access issues.
A piece of wood from the listed warehouse was preserved prior to the works. The plaque says: “This ‘flap’ has been preserved from number 1 Shad Thames prior to internal demolition. Constructed in Elm, with iron straps, it was used to support the mill workers when leaning out over the street and dock while they controlled the hoist unloading barges and carts."
Director Keith Murray FRICS and Associate Director Sam Field MRICS oversaw this project alongside Matt Leggett at PJ Harte and Delena Minott at Lamberts Surveyors.
