Dom Manuel is a total rehabilitation of an 18th-century Portuguese townhouse into 8 modern apartments and one shop with architectural details that reflect the craftsmanship of Porto’s construction techniques.

The construction maintains the front facade of traditional tiled facades and windows with French balconies. The structure of the building is entirely new. The back facade of the building is full glass with aluminum profiles, opening up the view to the garden of the National Museum of Soares dos Reis.

Deadline Control

The work of architecture and infrastructures was initiated on March 1 2021 and has a period of 7 months.

In August, one architectural change was made in four bathrooms, the separation wall between the bathrooms and kitchen/living room was moved to enlarge the kitchen/living room area.

The interior finishes work was postponed due to the delay in the shipment of window frames and glasses from subsuppliers. The window frames are fully executed as of the time of this report. The window glass is being installed on site. Interior finishes including wooden floor, stones, carpentry will follow, which postponed the final conclusion of the work by 19 November 2021.

After the completion of works, tests of facilities, municipal surveys, and certifications, and connections to public utilities such as water, electricity, and wastewater will be performed.

Deviation Recovery Plan

The construction management team together with the contractor have optimized the planning of the final phase of construction. Due to shipment delay in materials, the team has already optimized the timeline to deliver the interior works on-site with an extra workforce.

The inspection team will begin public utility connections requests and inspection requests when critical works in the interior are completed.
