The Knightsbridge Estate

The Knightsbridge Estate, London, U.K. is a magnificent island site occupying 3.5 acres of prime real estate in the heart of historic Knightsbridge. Meticulously restored and modernised in recent years by owner The Olayan Group, the most important enhancement is underway at the northern end of this prestigious property. Here a 340,000-square-foot mixed-use scheme will sit behind the retained heritage façades, maintaining the unique character of the area, while delivering a brand new building that meets modern occupiers’ needs.

The redevelopment will deliver seven new flagship stores, high quality Grade A office accommodation and 33 luxury apartments for the rental market set around a private courtyard. A roof-top restaurant will crown the development accessed via a ground floor cafe and deli. Working with Skanska’s integrated team of mechanical, electrical and public health experts, HDR was appointed as the Commissioning Management team.  Following the excellent performance of our teams at the early stages of this project, Skanska assigned HDR to provide mechanical, electrical and plumbing services that will serve the Knightsbridge underground station.

This project implemented Nucleus, our bespoke self-developed management and validation software. Nucleus has been a huge success and has helped track the progress of the works through the certification process. It has helped manage issues, risks, actions, and documents while providing the opportunity to record site observations, diary entries and safety risk assessments. Nucleus has allowed us to successfully conduct progressive sectional completions on this project. This is to ensure key units are open on time and that their heating, cooling, water, power and safety are ready ahead of planned occupancy. All while there is ongoing construction back-of-house.
