Curiouser and Curiouser…
We’ve all heard of The Old Curiosity Shop, but did you know it actually exists in Central London?
It’s located in Portsmouth Street, WC2 and as everyone knows, was immortalised in the Charles Dicken’s novel of the same name. It’s also a stone’s throw away from Fresson and Tee’s offices in Lincoln’s Inn Fields.
Fresson and Tee have extensive experience of working with many old and listed properties, but probably none as famous as this.
In this instance, the adjoining building is currently being demolished as part of a large redevelopment. Fresson and Tee have reviewed the methods associated with the redevelopment to help protect The Old Curiosity Shop from the consequences of these works.
This project utilises the party wall expertise of Fresson and Tee’s Architecture and Building Consultancy (ABC) team.
Fresson and Tee’s ABC is more typically involved with its own clients’ construction projects and has several million pounds worth of development on the go at any one time.
Working in prime central London locations, these are normally either residential, offices or shop properties.
