KDS were originally employed on a Design and Build basis to present a scheme for a completion to refurbish the magnificent Meeting Rooms of the Grade II* Listed Members Clubhouse on Pall Mall.

Upon winning the commission, KDS worked with the Club’s appointed Interior Designer, Robert Lush in preparing working drawings and details, acting as lead consultant and managing the design team through to the successful completion of the works. 

This initial appointment resulted in the formation of a working relationship that continued for several years, where KDS where retained to assist in further significant improvements works to the Banqueting Suites, Cocktail Bar, Meeting Rooms and Bedroom refurbishments for Members use. 

One of the major appointments was the formation of a new Banqueting Suite and extension to the kitchens located to the rear of the Clubhouse, which received Planning and Listed Buildings consent, was meticulously programmed around maintaining the existing facilities to be kept fully operational whilst the works were completed.
