VALE SOUTHERN TO TRANSFORM FORMER PUB INTO £4.6M RESIDENTIAL SCHEME



Vale Southern Construction has been appointed to convert a former pub into a

£4.6m residential scheme in Sutton, South London.


The project will see the Portsmouth-based contractor extend and remodel the three-

storey building to accommodate 26 new apartments. Additional floor space will be

built at the side of the property and a further two storeys constructed using a steel

frame system.


The ground floor will be retained for commercial use and externally, a communal

garden with play area created for new residents.


Vale Southern will also be responsible for fitting out the development, including the

installation of floors, fittings and furnishings as well as a mechanical and electrical

package. To help reduce carbon emissions, solar panels will feature on the roof and

energy efficient lighting will be incorporated throughout the scheme.


Jon James, Contracts Manager at Vale Southern, said: “This turnkey construction

project will regenerate a prominent local building, which our team knows well as we

were responsible for refurbishing the former pub around 15 years ago!


“The property was built more than 160 years ago, so the conversion is bringing it up

to modern standards while delivering a significantly larger footprint that can

accommodate one, two- and three-bedroom homes.



“Located on a busy one-way street in the centre of Sutton, the site is very

constrained so presents various logistical challenges for our team. A tower crane will

be in regular use requiring stringent traffic management.”


Now on site, the development is being brought forward by property investment firm,

West Wicklow Property, and is expected to be complete by November 2022.
