Furness House, Redhill

Ocea will be converting this 26,637 sq. ft. (NIA) commercial office space into approximately 72 residential apartments in Redhill, Surrey.

Located in the affluent suburb of Redhill, Furness House is spread over ground and three upper floors which also benefits from 76 rear parking spaces.

Furness House will be transformed into intelligently designed one or two bed properties to meet the housing requirement for local families and individuals seeking accommodation close to Redhill, which is located just 22 miles South of Central London with excellent transport links.

This project is currently in the planning phase, and this profile will be updated throughout the development process, to demonstrate how Ocea and its investment partners breathe new life into unloved commercial properties. If you currently own a disused property, or would like to invest in a similar project, then please contact us at info@ocealife.com.

During Conversion

31st July 2019

Furness is up and running! The contractor has made immense progress in the last period and some might say they are flying!

Demolition and soft strip are substantially complete and the plant room has been cleared using a crane to lift the demo materials down to ground level.

The majority of the compartment walls are now erected on 3rd floor with the 2nd & ground floors not far behind.

1st fix wiring and underfloor heating has been installed to the 3rd floor and screeds have been installed. 2nd floor units where available have been prepared for screeding with sound attenuation installed.

Windows are installed to the 3rd floor and 2nd floor windows are being replaced to help replenish the look of the existing office block.

The scaffold is substantially complete around the outside of the building and the hoist has been installed for materials on site.

It may have only just begun, but already we’re already feeling excitement for the finished product.

1st May 2019 

The first of May saw the first full site meeting to review the initial progress made by the contractor.

The site has been set-up by the contractor which has involved fencing off large areas of the rear car park and perimeter of the building to ensure all surrounding areas are kept safe.

The soft strip-out has commenced on the 3rd and 2nd floors, working around the 1 remaining tenant who are due to vacate the building by the end of May.

Steady progress has been made, and we’re really excited that Furness House is now progressing at a pace.
