Groundforce Shorco has supplied heavy-duty shoring equipment to specialist contractor S Walsh & Sons for use in a highly-sensitive basement project in London’s Knightsbridge district.
S Wash & Sons is carrying out the redevelopment of Amberwood House, formerly the Panamanian Embassy and home of legendary ballerina Dame Margo Fonteyn and her ambassador husband Dr Roberto Emilio Arias.
Kam Babaee, CEO of the K10 Group Ltd, London’s leading high end property developers who are behind the development, describes the property as a palatial and unique residence. Once completed the 15,300 sq. ft luxury private mansion, will include a cinema/ clubroom and a grand 12 metre swimming pool room which will be the largest private swimming pool in Knightsbridge.
Amberwood House is soon to go on the market for an estimated price of £75m. A major part of the transformation and enlargement of the three-storey building is the addition of a three-storey basement.
