JBA were appointed as Design Consultant for the extension and refurbishment of a 4* Hotel in Mayfair. The Design and Build contract was once again agreed by the main Contractor from a previously prepared Tender document (like the Apartment we completed earlier this year). JBA were therefore appointed by the Contractor to provide detailed design and construction information, as well as coordinate the Building Regs approval of the works.
This was my first attempt at detailing a large building, and while I had extensive guidance from the inimitable RH, there was a lot to learn in a very short space of time. Where so many aspects must work together, there is a constant struggle to maintain the highest possible standard, such that the client sees a result that is not only satisfying, but also compliant with Building Regulations.
