We have commenced work on an exciting new project in Malvern – a classic Victorian residence built in 1880. The works comprise of a “Multi-Faceted” extension & the removal of the ground floor internal walls to form a large kitchen/diner and utility, a small extension, windows, flooring and furniture.. The work has involved a structural engineer for the RSJ calculations and these photos show the continuation of work and foundations, which in these wet weather conditions has been challenging! Follow this page as Malvern Hills Furniture adds more photos showing the various steps through this building project.

We are most proud of this scheme which has to be one of the most thermally and energy efficient projects undertaken to date.

The original kitchen space was quite small and we were asked to remove a number of internal walls to open up the space and build a small extension with a period double-glazed bay window. This involved replacing the existing sash windows with double-glazed panels to match.

Following a thermal heat loss survey, a number of thin solid walls were identified as being areas of poor insulation. This included an ensuite bathroom with no insulation capacity whatsoever. The walls were reconstructed using modern energy saving methods and the end-result seamlessly integrated with the original fabric of the building, which itself is in a conservation area. This project was difficult logistically and as an example we had to take the old walls down whilst keeping the floors above supported.

We were able to build the bespoke  kitchen units in advance in our local  workshop, to the sizes and shape required by the client. The small “threepenny  bit” extension, as it became named, was built to house a bespoke round  , built-in oak  table and matching oak window seat. Oak flooring has been laid in the kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen houses a large granite island and has new doors and understair cupboards.

To further reduce energy consumption, all the original lights have been replaced with dimmable LED’s saving a significant amount of electricity for the client. In addition a series of ducted pipes have been added to enable waste warm air to be drawn down to a heat recovery unit in the cellar, which will generate sufficient heat to feed into underfloor heating.
