English and Rural Housing Association

Located in the village of Smeeth this rural development consists of 11 dwellings of 7 houses and 4 flats. Prior to construction work commencing on the building itself there was an extensive Southern Water sewer diversion to be undertaken to divert the existing sewer away from the footprint of the dwellings. In addition we worked closely with ecologists to ensure the safe migration of slow worms which involved the erection of a reptile fence to the perimeter of the site.

The timber frame dwellings comprised 2 and 3 bedroom houses and 1 bedroom flats. A variety of masonry, tile hanging, render and weather boarding was used to the elevations to give an aesthetically pleasing design which compliments the rural location.
