A residential development on the site of a former care home, adjacent to a primary school and allotments. We were appointed at the early stages of this project, prior to agreement of the land purchase by our client. This allowed us to help the client through the entire project from scheme inception to end of defects inspections.
Due the existing use of the site as a Care Home, the client had a lead in period before they were able to take Possession. Acting on our advice they appointed us to co-ordinate post procurement design, including taking the responsibility for the submission of pre-commencement planning conditions and developing specific areas of design to facilitate a fast start on site for the incoming contractor.
Due to the proximity of the site to the adjacent Primary School, we established a relationship withe Head of the school at a very early stage. This helped inform our design, as well as build trust, and help us set strict delivery parameters for the contractor so as not to detrimentally affect the school's activities.
