Exclusive Belgravia Town House Refurbishment

Focus SB Ltd is pleased to be involved in the re-development of a property at one of the most exclusive addresses in London.

The property is in a Crescent that was drawn up as part of the original plan for the development of Belgravia in 1820. It was built in 1825 and the north side of the crescent, where the property is located, was stone clad between 1908 and 1912 reflecting the growing prestige of the area.

Focus SB were involved in the design and specification of all electrical accessories, with Product Consultant Gennifer Ling working closely with John Coughlan of Electrotech the Electrical Contractors for the development.

John Coughlan comments, “The reason I have always preferred to use Focus SB is the company’s facility to produce non-standard accessory plates to any specification or finish. We have continued to use Focus SB as they offer similar products to Forbes & Lomax at more competitive prices.”

The re-development involved refurbishment of the town house and joining the mews house, at the rear, to the main building, creating a stunning glass atrium in the process. A pool and spa area was created under ground and the whole property was modernised to the highest specification and attention to detail.

John continues, “On this particular project in Belgravia, Focus SB provided a good brochure package and plate sample pack followed up by samples issued to the site.”

A range of bespoke plates and switches were subsequently designed including plates manufactured to match the unique bronze bathroom fittings. These bespoke plates were matched to a wide range of standard plates from the Focus SB Horizon Square range.

John adds, “As a contractor I need to know delivery times and Focus SB always delivered on time as agreed, this is very important to us when up against tight deadlines.”

In the 19th and 20th century, the property was home to many prominent politicians, ambassadors and civil servants. Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma (1900–1979) lived nearby. There are two diplomatic buildings nearby: the Embassy of Luxembourg and the High Commission of Singapore.

The property is due to be marketed in the region of £45m.
