This large Victorian House on extensive grounds was converted to quality new apartments, and new apartments were built on the site to maximise the return on the site.This involved careful surveying and conservation appraisal. A feasibility study was undertaken which helped the development of the brief. Assessments of the design for Part L,M and B were undertaken and costings prepared before planning application which was negotiated with the planners. Through good design we achieved a high quality product at a reasonable cost.
We took into account life cycle maintenance and energy efficiency, using the inputs of services engineers and quantity surveyor. Attic insulation, insulation of suspended floors, draught sealing of windows and doors, draught limiting balloons in chimneys, air tightness. High efficiency gas boilers and new radiators and controls were installed. Repair of existing brickwork and traditional building methods inside added to the green material procurement.
