Client: Bellis Homes
Project Value: £350k
Duration: 25 weeks
Marine Ices, which has been at the foot of Haverstock Hill in Chalk Farm since 1931, is moving out to make way for a new development. Excel worked with Bellis homes to demolish the current building, but retain the facade.
In a technical design of facade retention, Excel worked with local authorities to navigate road closures in busy Camden and specialist crane companies to build this retention, which will be staying in place throughout the next phase of the project, building foundations and a basement.
