101 Cleveland – London
Second fixings, joinery fit-outs, specialist joinery
This residential development comprises 103 apartments – 15 of which are affordable, and four of which are penthouses. Hillsons were contracted to undertake all the second fixings, as well as bathroom fit-outs, doors, skirtings, architraves, bathroom panelling and shower screens. In the penthouses, we carried out a complete joinery fit-out, including bookcases, fireplaces and staircases.
The development also includes communal areas, and we installed the reception desk and post boxes. In the basement we fitted the cinema with acoustic panelling and tiered seating, plus seating in the bar area, benching and mirrors in the gym, and a complete sauna.
This is a one-of-a-kind project: everything is bespoke and all the finishes are extremely high-end. We used walnut, cherry and some eucalyptus, as well as specialised acoustic panelling and a made-to-measure sauna. With high quality workmanship upmost in our minds, we safely managed the project throughout the late 2020 and early 2021 lockdowns. We also only had access to small lifts, so we had to ensure that our suppliers manufactured individual lengths of wood, brass etc to a size that could be securely transported to the sub-basement.
