Project Information 

 

Complex housing association contract which saw the team add a fifth floor to an existing,major apartment block and constructed infill apartments on reclaimed land. 

 

The Association committed to improve an estate of 112 existing homes and also to make best use of the land ‘footprint’ to construct 44 new homes, most as an added storey to the existing five blocks, and two new infill blocks

Problem

The site is constrained by a railway line to the rear and a busy main road to the front, which had tight restrictions on access.

 

The contract had to be completed in seven carefully planned phases in order to complement Association’s funding mechanism.

The site constraints and the disruption that would be caused by a traditional method of construction ruled this option out.

Solution 

By delivering the new flats in separate pods we were able to drastically reduce delivery and installation times, minimising disruption in the area.

Our technology affords us the opportunity to manage the build precisely, supplying and installing the new floor in individual, self-contained units.
