The client shared with us their ideas for the villa, and how they saw it fitting in with their lifestyle. From this we prepared initial sketches and a budget, the contractors using these to make preliminary construction drawings. Owing to the short timeline and existing structural constraints, we worked on the design directly with the specialist contractors.
A family villa with beautiful lake view, just 15 minutes from Zurich city centre.
Our clients purchased this property in a beautiful, quiet location with magnificent views overlooking Lake Zurich. Our task was to renovate it extensively, to reflect the new owners’ taste and style and to ensure the structural condition met the most up-to-date standards. The work involved a complete new interior fit-out including floorings, bathrooms and kitchen, as well as a second kitchen, geothermal heat pump and new balcony.
Once the clients were satisfied with the preliminary construction drawings, detailed technical construction drawings were created. These were used to make certain structural changes, in consultation with the civil and structural engineer, architect, other relevant engineers and the various contractors.
In our role as construction manager we were on-site 2 – 3 days a week, overseeing the various contractors’ work and that of the other specialists, suppliers and technicians. We ensured all work was co-ordinated, on time, on budget, and met the expected design and quality.
We reviewed all of the work and prepared a snags list. We reviewed final accounts and invoices to ensure they corresponded with the work carried out and the contracts. Making sure all manuals and warranties were provided, we installed the furniture, fixtures and equipment. The entire project was delivered within 7 months, a period which included the winter holiday season.
