Phase 1 and 2 of East Grinstead come to a close with a team site visit.

The Bastien Jack team had a sneaky day out of the office last week to see the fruits of their labour.
The site at Phoenix House, East Grinstead which was formerly a substantial office used by the Health and Safety Executive has now been converted to 28 luxury apartments.  Minor works continue over Christmas to add the finishing touches to a couple of the units but largely the project is now complete.
The team have done a great job of keeping this project on track and getting the best value out of the land and delivering a great product.  Each unit has mechanical ventilation and heat recovery units, highly energy efficient LED lighting, high gloss fitted kitchens, carpets, ergonomically designed bathrooms and allocated secure parking.  We’ve already had 18 completions onsite and the team are now making final preparations to hand over the apartments to each buyer.
PS. If you missed this opportunity we have phase 3 coming along soon which is 12 new build apartments on the town centre site.

Phoenix House Phase 2 update – November 15

We are in the final stages of Phase 2 Phoenix House and delighted to confirm we are on programme despite some awful unseasonal weather for the South East.  The Townhouses have 1st fix electrics completed while plumbing is nearing the end of its 2nd fix.  Externally we are well on with the external finishes and will be aided further when the scaffold is removed.

The penthouses are also well on with the separating wall and internal partitions in place.  1st fix electrics are also complete and plumbing as the townhouses nearing 2nd fix completion.  We are ready to commence skimming and plastering!

The site has evolved significantly as we fully engage with new build and conversion around already completed and occupied Phase 1.  Careful consideration has been given to our new occupiers as we co habit the site, daily briefings are  provided via notices in the lobby and daily due diligence and Health & Safety risk analysis is conducted by our Site Manager.
