Chelsea New Development

Originally redeveloped by Native Land, the estate is made up of 10 mews houses and 18 flats. The maintenance of the property had been neglected by the previous management and the buildings appearance had begun to deteriorate. These issues were:

 

  • External railings and planting very dirty and poorly presented
  • Stained roadway, exterior stone flooring and walls
  • Dirty external light fittings
  • Art installation was poorly cared for
  • Mismanagement of waste disposal  
  • Ill-fitting door to bin store
  • Broken drain cover
  • Professional cleaning of the internal areas was required
  • Broken ironmongery to joinery panels

 

Bruton Street Management were appointed in 2014 in order to rectify these shortcomings and improve the overall value of the estate.

Being a relatively new development the property required a management strategy that would complement this attractive scheme. This bespoke strategy included:

 

  • Regular inspections of the property
  • Preparation of 10 year capital expenditure plan
  • Improved facilities and property management
  • A complete overhaul of porterage arrangements to improve the management of the day-to-day running of the property.
  • Budgeting and collection of service charges
  • Procurement and review of maintenance and service contracts
  • Health and safety risk assessment and compliance
  • 24/7 emergency cover

 

The overall appearance and upkeep has greatly improved since the appointment of Bruton Street Management. The external façade was cleaned during the first year of appointment and the landscaped areas have been carefully maintained by skilled gardeners. The internal areas has been recently updated in order to maintain the high standard of design which would be expected at such a property. The introduction of higher-quality porterage services has improved overall facilities management, cleaning standards and enhanced the lives of those residing at the scheme.
