Ste Foy Chalet Construction

Completed Projects

Ste Foy Chalet Construction Ste Foy Tarentaise

Project Details:

This Ste Foy chalet construction involves the almost complete demolition of an existing chalet to create a new chalet built over 3 levels, with an increase in habitable space.  An additional storey will allow a dedicated entrance hall and improved access to the chalet and car parking for 4 vehicles.

The existing chalet is built into the side of the mountain and borders a private road.  This Ste Foy chalet construction project has required extensive input and continued consultation with structural engineers to achieve the project brief.  The existing chalet must be demolished in the main with the roof and upper level walls all being demolished.  Extensive groundworks & excavation will follow which will allow the structural reinforcement of the foundations and lower level structural walls. Once the chalet structure has been secured work will begin on an extension to the side of the chalet, an extension above and finally a new stone / slate roof using local lauzes.

Once the structural works are complete the chalet works will begin on an internal renovation with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  There will also be extensive landscaping involving further retaining walls at this Ste Foy chalet construction project.
