This complicated project comprised the construction of one block of eighteen flats and one bungalow on a vacant brown field site. The main challenge on this typically tight town centre scheme was the limited space available for the storage of materials. Careful planning was required to ensure materials arrived on a “just in time” basis.

The ground floor four flats were housed within an insitu-concrete structure onto which four storeys of timber frame were built. Although the top two flats were originally designed for 50% ownership sale, the specification was amended at the clients request to change these to affordable rented tenure.
