Project Description:
Morris House is a complete building refurbishment. It was built in 2005 and has since deteriorated due to lack of maintenance and the changes to building regulations for fire safety.

Arte were approached by Countryside and Shepherds Bush Housing Association to undertake a series of initial intrusive investigations on all the facades, walkways, roofs and terraces.

A report was then produced by Arte which highlighted multiple issues with the building which included a lack of fire breaks, combustible materials used within the facades, water ingress on all roof and terrace surfaces, and damage to residential apartments throughout the building. Working with our clients we produced a scope of works, and communicated with their design team to specify materials used.


Arte have engaged with their own design team to fully design the new facades which include, timber replacement to rockpannel, render removal and re-rendering, timber walkways and replacement with aluminium, cement board replacement with rockpannel and a complete new roof to the building using an IKO torched on felt system.
