Meribel Chalet Renovation

Completed Projects

Meribel Chalet Renovation – small renovation works


Project Description:

Our client purchased this very tired and dated apartment of 120m2 on the route des chalets, Meribel in late summer giving us just 10 weeks to make it habitable by the beginning of the ski season.  In need of a general refurbishment and updating it required the coordination of 8 separate contractors in a very short space of time.  Removal of an old stone fireplace and replacement with wood burning stove and new chimney flue, new electrical board, new sanitary fittings. New floorings, carpet and painted throughout.  Brought in on time and on budget for our client.  Another successful Meribel Chalet renovation project for Simon Jones.

Projects within apartment blocks, always (and especially in Val d’Isere and Tignes), require the developer to tread carefully to keep all neighbours onside and to keep the co-prop happy during building works.  It’s vital to have someone to smooth over any misunderstandings and someone that neighbours feel they can approach in the event of a potential issue arising.  A professional maitre d’oeuvre gives neighbours this opportunity without having to confront what can seem to be unapproachable builders.

As a general rule this particular project would be too small for Simon Jones to accept an instruction on.  However, we do, on occasions, have the ability to fit a small renovation project into our schedule.  On this occasion we were delighted to help.

Simon Jones undertakes construction, building, renovation and refurbishment projects in Meribel, Courchevel, St Martin de Belleville, Ste Foy Tarentaise, Lake Annecy, Val d’Isere and Tignes.  Our portfolio ranges from simple renovations to full scale rebuilds and the construction of new build chalets.
