Hyde Park Barracks

Location: London
Client: Ministry of Defence
Architect: Bovis

Over many years Cityline have carried out numerous and varied contracts at MOD barracks throughout London. This small contract is memorable as the museum houses the splendour of the Household Cavalry uniforms, musical instruments and other regalia in all their glory.

An empty basement store has been transformed through use of modern glazing, lighting and humidity control systems.

Whitton Baptist Church

Location: Whitton TW2
Client: Whitton Baptist Church
Architect: BCH Architects

Whilst the Nave of the church has been beautifully refurbished and maintained in recent years, the reception area was sadly awaiting rescue from the fifties. The external entrance driveway and car park was looking sad and neglected.

We undertook the refurbishment of the internal reception and common areas providing remodeling of the spaces, rewiring, new heating and plumbing, plastering decorations and flooring. We also constructed a new glazed entrance foyer, providing disabled access and lighter internal spaces.

The external work included the provision of pedestrian paving, new macadam surfacing to the entrance drive and car park, lighting and signage.

Arturo’s Restaurant

Location: London W2
Client: Mr. Anthony Brown
Architect: Stanford Eatwell & Associates

A structurally inept 4 storey London terrace has been transformed into a stylish 21st century dining experience with modern living accommodation over. A complicated foundation and steel frame structure was required to provide stability to the building and the open plan space that the business required.

Main House – Park Village East

Location: London NW1
Client: Private
Architect: B Harrison

Delighted with our construction of their new annexed apartment building, the client engaged us to refurbish their main residence, a five bedroom, four storey, grade 2 listed, Georgian Regency era semi-detached Crown Estate property bordering Regents Park. Together with the Architect, the Structural Engineer, a specialist interior design consultant and the client, a spectacular transformation has been achieved.

The property has been totally rewired, including the very latest in security and communication technology. A new multi zoned heating system and air-conditioning has also been installed. High specification finishes installed by selected trade specialists have produced a product of the highest quality to which we are justifiably proud.

The Globe Centre

Location: Mile End Road, London E1
Client: London Borough of Tower Hamlets

The Mile End Road bath house had stood empty for many years and has now been transformed to provide a day care centre. The existing building layout was incompatible with the proposed usage and required extensive demolition internally and the introduction of steel frames, new concrete floors and the formation of a large atrium which dominates the main entrance.

High specification mechanical and electrical installations, combined with high specification finishes, has provided the East London community with a valuable asset and proves that redundant buildings can, with vision, be adapted to provide the most modern accommodation.

Rockingham Estate Play Assoc

Location: London SE1
Client: The London Borough of Southwark
Architect: Robert Loader Associates

With the use of various contrasting materials and finishes, this small annexe typifies the modern approach to building. Poor ground conditions necessitated the requirement for piling and reinforced ground beams.

The timber framed building has a face brickwork exterior alongside Swedish pine windows, galvanised steel cills and reveals, open timber soffit and glazed automatic sliding doors. Attention to detail was paramount and the fine finishes were achieved through close co-ordination between the architect, the client and ourselves.

Upminster Library

Location: Upminster, Essex
Client: London Borough of Havering
Architect: Mouchel Parkman

The refurbishment of Upminster Library transformed a dowdy 1970’s built concrete frame building into a modern, user friendly environment for the community. The refurbishment provided disabled access facilities on two levels, curtain walling, new roof coverings and remodelling of the library layout.

A completely new heating and ventilation system, together with state of the art lighting and communications leaves the newly refurbished library very much in the 21st century.



Writtle New Build

Location: Writtle, Essex
Architect: David Butt Associates

This beautiful luxury 4 bedroom chalet bungalow with detached garage, nestling in the shadow of a great horse chestnut tree, was completed to the utmost satisfaction of the client.

Indeed, it impressed the building inspector sufficiently for him to write commending Cityline’s high standard of finish to the architect (Testimonials).

Club House

Location: Waltham Abbey, Essex
Client: Waltham Abbey Town Council
Architect: Curtis Taunton Partnership

With the success of a lottery funding application, Waltham Abbey Town Council has rejuvenated an area of local waste ground, providing sports amenities for the local community. Part of this scheme was the erection of a single story community centre and social club.

The landfill site demanded piled foundations with a reinforced suspended ground slab incorporating a methane barrier and ventilation. Internal fit out included the installation of a hardwood bar and servery, anti vandal electric window shutters and the usual quality finishes. Cityline are pleased to have worked with their local Council on this and many other projects.


Marie Stopes Clinic

Location: Essex
Client: Marie Stopes International
Architect: Woodward Ambrose Architects

Marie Stopes Clinic nestles in the leafy suburbs of Buckhurst Hill, Essex. The refurbishment of the clinics 3rd floor was carried out in conjunction with the requirement for disabled access in accordance with part M of the DDA.

This fine Victorian building was blighted by a more recent addition of a timber glazed porch and it was decided to incorporate the disabled access into a project to provide an entrance more in keeping with its heritage. A lead covered canopy, cast iron structural posts, ornate railings and stone steps are part of a fine addition to this property.
