This project comprised demolition of an existing two-storey block of flats, followed by the design and construction of 16 apartments for rent, in a part two-storey and part three-storey block, with semi-basement parking, all constructed on a sloping site. The building is a steel portal frame with stone and blockwork outer skin, rendered and clad.
The site is located in an area with restricted access, requiring deliveries by rigid vehicles only. Offloading was by tower crane, which necessitated a partial road closure.
It's been a privilege to work as the Employer's Agent and Principal Designer for Westcountry Housing Association in delivering a new block of 16 flats at Lee Court in Westward Ho! Many thanks to DREW Construction Group for being so co-operative in overcoming the challenges that presented themselves along the journey and for ultimately producing such a fine product!Gates Construction Consultants
