22 Kensington Gardens Square has progressed rapidly, while the focus has now moved from finalising the show apartment to completing the fit-out of the remaining 5 apartments, a highly detailed and intricate procedure. We are also concentrating on completing the remaining external works and decorating of the exterior façade.
In the last quarter, we have made good progress with the enabling and structural works. This has included the installation of a new roof, construction of the new core and structural frame, as well as the installation of the new upper floors. In apartment 1, which will be used as the benchmarking unit, the internal walls are currently being built and the M&E first fix has just started.
In the past quarter, we have made good progress with the groundworks. Accordingly, we are on target to complete the ground floor slab by the end of July, ready for brickwork to commence in August. The current focus is on completing the design of the fit-out packages, as well as the procurement of the superstructure.
Following the completion of the show apartment at Madison Apartments in June, the focus has now moved to completing the shell and the fit-out of the remaining apartments. In terms of the shell, the scaffold will start to be struck from the end of June. In terms of the apartments, most areas are now plastered and on the first and second floors, kitchens and bathrooms are currently being fitted. The penthouse will be the last property to be handed over and the first fix stage has now commenced on this.
Following the completion of demolition in the last quarter, we have now started the groundworks phase. The piling rig arrived on site in early June and these works will take 6-8 weeks. Following this, the construction of the basement will start in earnest. The basement construction is due to complete in November at which point brickwork above ground will commence. The current focus is on completing the design of the fit-out packages, as well as the procurement of the superstructure.
