Project Description

Client: Parish Church Council of St Andrew’s Church
Location: Fulham, London
Year Completed: 2011
Contractor: Farnrise Construction Limited
Architect: Crowther Associates
Contract Value: £2.8m

This was an interesting redevelopment project involving the demolition of the west end of a late 19th century church, including an internal 1970’s reinforced concrete mezzanine floor, and the construction of a new five-storey block of ten flats. Three-storeys of community facilities were inserted into the remaining church.

The flats were constructed using a braced reinforced concrete flat slab frame to overcome the requirements of limitation of disproportionate collapse, site constraints and the restricted depth of the structural floor zone. At fourth floor level, two penthouse flats were formed within a timber mansard frame.

The mezzanine floors within the original church were formed using concrete slabs cast on composite metal decking and supported on new steel framing.
