Fortis Vision were given a very challenging window of opportunity to develop full working architectural and engineering internal refurbishment drawings incorporating multiple room sizes and complex ventilation upgrade requirements to existing buildings.

Careful planning was required in order to comply with HMO and Building Regulations for Part F of The Building Regulations and ensuring there was adequate cooking facilities for flats consisting of 5 or more residents.

A stone’s throw from Headingley Cricket Ground. To add a further challenge to Fortis Vision’s delivery of this major refurbishment scheme we had to plan and work around England versus Australia (the Ashes) international cricket match during our contract period.

Works to all bedrooms and kitchens consisted of full decontamination and internal strip out back to the original shell. M&E and ventilation works consisted of small power, lighting and mechanical heat recovery systems.

Internal refurbishment included kitchen installation, bedroom furniture installation, flooring, decoration, bespoke joinery and full dressing of bedrooms.

We are very proud of our achievement, handing over James Baillie Park to Unite Students 3 days early, thus allowing them to carryout early check in’s. We look forward to James Baillie Park phase 2 later this year to conclude the remaining 50% of this unique and peaceful Headingley estate.
