One Hyde Park Product procurement and project management
Our client, a well-established, London based stone contractor, won the interior stone package as part of the fit out of the penthouse apartments which were retained by the owner of the entire scheme. With prices reaching £75m and a luxurious specification to match, One Hyde Park is world-renowned as the most exclusive development of residential apartments in London.
The penthouses stone package included marble cladding and vanities, limestone flooring and solid granite feature walls installed in the bathrooms, kitchen, powder rooms and sauna room.
With such a discerning client, the stone contractor realised they would need a highly competent project manager to communicate with the main contractor’s site team and drive the installation programme to ensure timely completion.
They turned to the Stone Consultants to project manage the entire stone package on their behalf. Robert Merry took up a site-based role, which involved liaison between the site operatives and the factory, representing the stone contractor at all meetings and keeping meticulous records to avoid costly disputes after completion.
“The Stone Consultants were able to deal directly with both the client and the contractor’s site team on our behalf. They also kept clear records of the work and progress which gave us a professional edge. They provided the perfect solution for us on this project.”
