We installed this beam in the basement of the Village Tap, Victoria Park.
This photo shows a PFC to supporting the chimney breast prior to the chimney breast being removed. The PFC is supported by UC 203 spanning both party walls. The removal of a chimney breast adjoining a neighbors property is notifiable under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.
I personally carried out all the internal fitout of this refurbished office, originally a jewellers shop, which included the drylining, plastering and making the concrete desk -plastered with 'Portofino', which gave the effect that the desk was made from a matt marble.
The open stairwell could not be photographed in one shot but it goes from the ground floor to the top floor office with Velux windows sitting above.
This is the cloakroom to the studio office, I did all the plastering & wall tiling as well as fitting out the sanitaryware. An extractor fan was incorporated above the ceiling using the perimeter shadow gap as ventilation.
view from Langford cresc at night.
This small office was originally a jewellers shop which we converted to an architectural studio office.
3 houses of timberframe construction with roof gardens and partial view of the olympic village.
This top floor has a great 'feel good' factor, the client spent a little bit more up here on our advice and was well pleased with the result.
This photo was taken to highlight the lights built into the glass window & faux window.
This cloakroom was a bit tired and a lot of wasted space......so we installed a new base unit complete with sink.....see next photo
This sample shows the finish 'as finished' and also an area which has been further worked to show an alternative effect. As these are not tiles the sizes can be done to suit.
This is a sample I made showing just 1 one of the endless patterns and colour variations available..
This shows the light not quite fully dimmed, It was not very dark outside when I took this photo but the client will send me some which will be taken when it is fully dark. I was told they look really good when it gets dark, I thought they still looked nice in daylight even though switched off!
This is the rear of the building in Paul St, London, EC1. Part was external wall insulation to the newer upper storeys and sand / cement render was applied to the existing masonry lower storeys.
Some areas were given a texture the others left as they are to show the difference of how it can be finished.
We installed an External wall insulation system to thisaward winning timberframe house in Hackney - consisting of 2cm EPS finished with 1mm Miratect. The facade was designed not to have any fascias or angles - just clean lines and still looks clean today!
Apart from developing and building these 2 houses I, personally carried out the internal plastering and external rendering. The photos are from Google some 20 yrs after the work was carried out.
The skirting has since been fitted !- We did most of the refurbishment that the client was unable to do himself. We did some demolition, put up new partition walls, plastering, floorlevelling, plumbing, I did the venetian marble plastering just to make it look different.,etc
Another photo showing the external render to the rear of the house.
This shows the arched doorway linking the kitchen to the utility room. taken ca. 1988.
This LV spotlight - 1 of a pair was installed by me, plastered in and the decorated.

Reviews

Exceptional boundary expertise

5
I engaged Lee Kyson’s services to deal with a complex boundary matter involving a number of parties. Lee has dealt with difficult issues and people with clarity, dignity and integrity. He has been a calming and steadying influence - so much so that other parties have seen sense. He was also not afraid to be realistic in managing my expectations too which is so important when dealing with issues that could result in expensive proceedings. In addition to his exceptional professional ability, Lee really has been one the kindest and caring professionals I have ever dealt with.

Great job Lee! Amazing work.

5
We appointed Lee as our party wall surveyor on two separate occasions, once for our loft conversion and the latter for our ongoing extensions.

Firstly, Lee is an incredibly knowledgeable and down-to-earth human being. He will see each matter out to the end, with a high chance of satisfaction. With Lee, we managed to secure an award with a troublesome neighbour and their incompetent 'time-wasting to bump up fees' surveyor. As a result, we are delighted with the outcome.

Lee is always calm throughout. Whilst we were in a panic, he was reassuring and alaid any fears. Also, Lee is very approachable and goes out of his way to make his clients happy. Just trust the man, trust the process.

I'll recommend Lee's services to those that need him and will be using him on all our matters again in the future.

Not all heros wear a cape. 5/5

Very thorough

5
Mr. Kyson attended my property on several occasions regarding the paving laid to my front drive I was having problems with. He inspected all , including footings, supplied photos and report to myself and my solicitor. Mr. Kyson then prepared all for court and I was paid back the full amount of money for having all works to be carried out again. Very pleased with outcome. Very thorough with all.
