This was a large-scale refurbishment of a beautiful house in Kensington. (6000sq ft in total). The project had been ongoing for 5 years when we were brought in by our client, who is extremely busy and travels a lot.
Although he had a build team, he needed someone to act for him who really understood projects and could drive things forward and make decisions. We were uniquely placed to help because the client was borrowing from the bank for the works, and there was a whole host of documentation and conditions that needed addressing. (We used our previous experience on the other side of the table as corporate lawyers.)
This enabled us to act as a bridge between the project and the bank, making the overall project run with ease and clarity.
