project brief | Featuring 36 modern apartments, a sizeable commercial unit and secure resident parking, this is a flagship development for a growing development company.

The scheme rationally incorporates technologies such as wet under- floor heating & centralised heating to achieve the required ‘Code for Sustainable Homes’ credits delivering a low maintenance building with excellent environmental credentials. Many of the apartments enjoy roof terraces offering expansive views over the leafy surroundings.

Efficient building technologies such as composite slabs, brick slips and thin screeds are used in combination to maximise ceiling heights and floor areas. Each of the apartments is carefully considered to provide flexible light-filled living accommodation.
