Cumnor Construction Ltd. carried out the role of Works Contractor and PSCS for this project.
The project involved the construction of twenty-nine high specification apartments. A number of different blocks ranging from seven storeys to two storeys were built. The buildings were constructed of a mixture of reinforced concrete and blockwork walls, along with steel element structures. Balconies were finished in hardwood decking. The apartments achieved the A-Energy rating. The heating system is a very economical Heat Recovery System. All glazing was triple glazed.
Due to the presence of fill material on site extensive deep excavations were required to remove this material and locate solid ground underneath. This required the removal of up to six metres of fill material in places. The sides of the excavation and adjoining buildings were protected at all times. Piling was also required on the site.
External works included new foul and storm water systems with attenuation tank and interceptor. A substantial amount of planting, trees and lighting were installed The existing pavement and roadway at the main entrance was finished with granite paving and existing cobbles.
