Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge

The Project:

We were asked to provide an Air Handling Unit for the kitchen area on the 5th Floor. Goods for this customer were delivered as a flat pack which were all transported up to the roof. We then built a supply only unit with heating and DX Coil.

Description of works: Supply and build Air Handling Unit for Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge Cocktail Bar


In 1831, Benjamin Harvey opened a linen shop in a terraced house on the corner of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street in London. In 1835, the shop expanded to No.8 next door, and would continue to expand into successive properties over the following years. In 1841, Benjamin employed James Nichols from Oxfordshire. In 1845, Nichols was promoted to management and in 1848, he married Harvey’s niece, Anne Beale. Meanwhile, in 1847, Harvey's son and heir Benjamin Charles was born. Benjamin Harvey died in 1850, leaving the business in the care of his wife Anne, who went into partnership with James Nichols to form
Harvey Nichols & Co.

Project Achievements

This unit was ordered as a flat pack as it was not possible to move goods by crane due to the position of the building. This resulted in not having to arrange road closures. A job well done by all!
