Tivoli

BEFORE:

Following the successful restoration of a Regency property in Imperial Square Cheltenham, MJF Electrical were appointed by the same client to carry out a full electrical renovation on another period property in Tivoli, Cheltenham.

An exciting project to work on, the prestigious Grade II listed building is home to two blue plaques on the exterior of the building to commemorate its former residents. Dame Sidney Jane Browne, founder of the Royal College of Nursing, who lived at the property between 1927-1941 and Sir Ralph Richardson, Actor & Co-Director of the Old Vic, who was born at the property in 1902.

MJF Electrical proposed the full internal and external power and lighting design to incorporate modern electrical features with the original character and fabric of the building.

DURING:

Once the electrical design was finalised, our team started on the first fix. This stage involved stripping out the existing electrical system on all three storeys and installing the new hard-wired electrical infrastructure for the entire build. Our team successfully avoided damaging the delicate infrastructure of the property by finding innovative ways to route the cabling within the existing structure.
Second fix is when the home really started to take shape. The client chose a number of high-end fixtures and fittings, including:

• Recessed stairway lighting
• Statement ceiling pendants
• Up-lights in the fireplace hearths
• Integrated fireplace wine fridge
• Gorgeous under-cabinet lighting
• Stylish mirrored TV
• Illuminated LED mirrors

AFTER:

The client’s vision was achieved and they have added another beautiful house renovation to their property portfolio. The finished project exudes high quality and the modern electrical elements have been integrated to compliment the age of the property.

Our work was always executed within the required timescales at each stage of the build. The house was finished to an exceptional quality.

Our excellent relationship with the client meant all challenges were overcome with ease and it has been a pleasure to work on multiple high-end period properties together.

“I have been working with Matt and his team now for about a year and have recently started the restoration of another prominent Regency building in central Cheltenham with Matt. Working with Matt has been an absolute pleasure and it’s really encouraging working with a team of proactive tradesmen who are both accountable and proud of their work. I have always found the team to be very friendly and polite and their work 1st class. Communication has been excellent throughout our working relationship and a high level of trust has been achieved with them becoming key holders of projects they are working on. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone requiring electrical work done at their home or business.”
