New Addition To Europe’s Most Desired Postcode

National fit out specialist EE Smith Contracts Ltd has started work on a major project at one of the finest addresses in the UK.

Built in 1905, the existing Grade II listed façade will be restored to it’s former glory, ready to entice potential buyers to the 15 magnificent apartments to be fully fitted out by EE Smith Contracts Ltd. This grand refurbishment will combine retail, residential & office space within its 100-metre-long span.

The contract, in association with Sir Robert McAlpine, Dixon Jones and APML Estates, will see EE Smith working on the project until its completion towards the end of 2020.

Where Harrod’s food hall is the corner shop, The Mandarin Oriental is the local for a pint (or a chilled glass of champagne!)  & only a stones throw from Hyde Park, it’s no wonder this is the most desirable postcode for the super-rich.

It is not the first project in the neighbourhood completed by EE Smith which also worked on Hans Place and One Hyde Park.

Neil Bottrill, managing director of the company which is based in Leicester, said: “Knightsbridge will stylishly combine contemporary, clean design with classic Edwardian exteriors, making the apartments extremely appealing to those who are drawn to traditional English architecture when making investments.

‘Mechanical & electrical and audio-visual work is a growing specialism of ours so we are delighted to be commissioned to undertake that aspect of the project.’

The contractor, founded in 1897, is working on numerous other large-scale projects in the capital, such as The Londoner – a 350-suite, 5-star flagship hotel, Battersea Power Station- and the Radisson Edwardian in Leicester Square which will feature 350 guest rooms, 15 suites, five restaurants and lounges, a rooftop bar, a subterranean spa as well as a 1,000-capacity ballroom.
