When purchased, this 2 storey property was configured as 5 separate flats, each with their own front-door thus no communal entrance. The property was partially occupied when purchased but it had been neglected for a number of years and the conditions in which the existing tenants were living were very poor.
Since the property is located close to Singleton Park and university campus the target tenants were Students. An architect was employed to reconfigure & find optimum layouts for each of the flats.

The plumbing scope included the installation of 5 bathrooms, 4 gas boilers & 27 radiators.
The carpentry scope included 4 kitchens, 13 fitted wardrobes & desks, 22 fire doors and in excess of 400m of Skirting & architrave.
