From Flowers to Wedding Belles

A partnership between our Commercial Agency and Building Surveying team has turned around the fortunes of a tired shop in Fareham High Street.  The property needed a complete refurbishment when the previous tenant, a florist, vacated after many years of occupation.

The landlord instructed us to oversee a complete refurbishment of the property prior to putting the shop back on the market through our commercial agency.

The Buildings Surveying team at Daniells Harrison Chartered Surveyors appointed contractors to carry out the extensive refit of the shop which included:

  • stripping out old fixtures and fittings
  • installation of new kitchenette and welfare facilities
  • rewiring
  • extensive damp proofing works
  • internal refurbishment of shop
  • new windows
  • new guttering
  • new water mains in place of the lead pipes.

We also liaised with the contractor and local water authority to renew the mains supply to the property and, in conjunction with the landlords, installed additional surface water drainage via Hampshire Highways to remove water from the base of the building elevations on Union Street.

The newly refurbished property was put on the market by our commercial agency and has now been let to Wedding Belles, a company specialising in wedding planning.

It’s a great example of the joined-up service we can offer at Daniells Harrison Chartered Surveyors.
