Case study

Case study (and why it pays to be honest)


Our client, Angeleen Wu, was looking to refurbish her two-bedroom flat in Cambridge Gardens, Notting Hill. She invited six recommended building contractors to discuss his ideas and provide estimates.

To use her words:

"I chose Klimstar over the others (that came in slightly cheaper or roughly at the same price) for the reason that Damian, Klimstar, was upfront and honest from the start by advising that part of my ideas had Health & Safety implications so it would not be possible to implement whilst the other builders said "as you wish" in order to get my business. As I am not a building expert I felt that I would be in safe hands by going with Klimstar"

What we did

We started by completely stripping out the interior, including all floors, the kitchen and bathroom. Next, we levelled existing floors since they were very uneven, inserting sister joists alongside. Then we soundproofed the floors and installed underfloor heating, before laying a newly engineered floor on top, plus new skirting boards. 

All the old windows were replaced with new double glazed, sprayed white sash versions. We also removed old doors and supplied and fitted bespoke 2.4m high walnut ones.

We installed new electrics throughout, plus a new gas fireplace. We also put in new plumbing and replaced the boiler. Next was kitchen installation plus a new bathroom, complete with all tiling. Finally, all walls and ceilings were plastered and decorated.


The flat was completely transformed, and the client was very happy:

"I would highly recommend Klimstar who have been professional throughout and were understanding and flexible when I made a number of changes to the scope of work during the project.  Klimstar did an excellent job in gutting my apartment from top to bottom and completely transforming it into a beautiful, sleek and chic Notting Hill pad, as you can see from the photographs. Thank you Klimstar"
