Project story

The refurbishment of Kennet House, a former office block, lead to an increase in the building's height from 6 to 10 stories.

Situated on the bank of the river Kennet, this complex provides 103 contemporary apartments, basement parking and landscaped courtyard gardens.

A fantastically challenging scheme in build and location.

Kennet House was a complex refurbishment for developer Crest Nicholson, and it provided a fantastic opportunity for Jessella to demonstrate our façade capabilities, quite early on in our own company history. It looks fantastic, very well done to everybody involved.
