The team are pleased to confirm Phases 1 and 2 of our development at Phoenix House East Grinstead are complete and all units have sold. Most apartments are now occupied and the residents are settling in. The Bastien Jack team extend a warm welcome to them and hope they enjoy their new homes.
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.
After planning permission was granted to provide two penthouse flats in the roof void and two new three storey Townhouses at the end of Phoenix House, work started at a pace.
Despite the wettest August in a century with rainfall in West Sussex totalling 144.2mm, the team have progressed very well with Phase 2 and are ahead of programme!

All goes to plan at Phoenix House and serious progress is being made. Most of the flats are near completion internally with kitchens in and painting ongoing.
The formal planning permission for the penthouse apartments and the town-houses is expected this week.
There are some external works to complete and alterations to the roof, then the scaffolding can be removed.
Phoenix House is turning into a model project. It is absolutely on budget and on time. The building is looking great.
The team are entering a period of first and second fix trades following each other round.
We are approaching the period where the appliances are arriving ready to be fitted. We’re making arrangements to properly secure the building and then the kitchens and bathrooms can be second fixed.
