Mursell Estate, Clapham

This terrace of three listed properties range in age from Victorian to the late 1960s and is situated in the Mursell Estate conservation area. It required a sensitive approach to the renewal of roofs, windows and associated works, and included innovative green solutions.

While reinstating the original butterfly pitched roofs the opportunity was taken to install solar thermal water heating panels.

Hunters were building surveyors for the flat to pitch roof conversion at Dovet Court, a late 1960s slab block, to an award-winning green/sedum roof. We also surveyed large five-storey 1960s flats that had new roofs, private winter gardens and large solar panels added.
