This site was previously an office and retail block which had to be demolished first to facilitate space for the new build, consisting of nine stories. The steel frame construction was set on 18m piles, to balance out the amount of material procured from renewable resources, thus we ensured the external and internal wall were formed from FSC timber.
A mixture of glass, render and vitribond cladding (fire rated for buildings over 18m high) were used in the construction. The completed development comprised of a commercial retail unit on the ground floor with a further 37 apartments and ancillary gym space above.
