Listed mansion in Belgravia

Assignment

Listed mansion in Belgravia

Situation

Belgravia's high density of prime properties, lower rates of occupation, and significant foreign embassy presence mean that its residences are often a target for thieves, squatters, protestors and vandals. This property was vacant, with no existing security arrangement. Its features included a swimming pool and spa, needing regular monitoring and maintenance. We were briefed to provide a permanent 24/7 presence onsite, keeping the building secure from intruders and managing property maintenance on behalf of the overseas owners.

Solution

  • Installing permanent residence for two caretakers in a staff flat on the property
  • Ensuring continual observation of key access points and street frontages
  • Providing greeting and liaison for the owners’ family, visitors and contractors.
  • Controlling all access and exit
  • Ongoing monitoring of the condition of the property
  • The building has been protected during a period when neighbouring properties have been squatted, burgled or occupied
  • The owners have enjoyed peace of mind knowing their valuable asset is safe while they are abroad
  • Ongoing maintenance work is easy to manage with an onsite team to enable and monitor property access

Outcome

  • The building has been protected during a period when neighbouring properties have been squatted, burgled or occupied
  • The owners have enjoyed peace of mind knowing their valuable asset is safe while they are abroad
  • Ongoing maintenance work is easy to manage with an onsite team to enable and monitor property access
