Advice and guidance before, during and after construction
In addition to the vital work of managing the day to day running of the buildings within our portfolio, the KFH Block and Portfolio Management team works closely with owners, developers and builders before a single brick has been laid on a new residential scheme. The changing emphasis on property tenure and demand in the Capital means more and more Londoners are either renting for longer or purchasing new build properties through shared ownership and Help to Buy schemes. Our experience of block management in the Capital means we are ideally placed to advice and guide developers on how to best plan for and manage these demands.
Two Fifty One, Southwark Bridge Road, SE1
A 40 storey, 355 unit new build residential block with communal facilities including business and leisure spaces; gymnasium; entertaining, dining and conference areas; private screening room and residents’ garden.
Over the three years prior to the development’s completion in early 2018, KFH advised the owner and developer in three main areas:
- Phase 1. Prior to and during build: Advised on amenities and services required throughout the scheme while considering up-front and on-going costs and staffing requirements.
- Phase 2. Completion: Worked with the developer on the overall moving-in strategy for the launch of the building as well as advising on immediate and on-going staffing and management strategies.
- Phase 3. Ongoing management: Facilitate the ongoing building management including financial administration, maintenance and issues management, and communication between residents and owners.
