High Street, Winchester


Extensive refurbishment of a listed building on Winchester High Street.

Client Requirements:

SM5 Developments Limited were appointed to carry out extensive refurbishment to 6-8 High Street in Winchester City Centre following their relocation.  We were excited to be working with Gentian Developments again on another project.  Works were carried out to a tight programme and we were also required to navigate the challenges of working on a listed building in the centre of a very busy city and the restrictions that imposes.

Works include:
  • Full rip out of electrical, mechanical and shop fit over three floors.
  • Installation of new lintels and cavity trays on windows.
  • Installation of new window on level 2.
  • Replacement glass to all defected panels.
  • External repair work to brickwork and pointing in.
  • Strip old flat roof material and installation of new single ply membrane roof on a tapered insulation scheme.
  • Strip old pitched roof tiles etc. and installation of new slate tiles.
  • Installation of temporary lighting.
  • All windows and doors painted externally.
  • New doors fitted in courtyard.
