3 Houses and car port situated in an area of natural outstanding beauty
Architect: Mike Richards
This beautiful development of 3 houses comprised of a very difficult site set out as one of the attached properties was set on a tangent of 12 degrees and within a very close proximity to a 15th century well. The original design incorporated standard ceilings and window reveals but after consultation with the client it was decided that an element of vaulted/standard ceiling and angled reveals would afford a more traditional feel to the overall character of these stunning properties.
Detached bungalow nestled in the grounds of an existing 4 bedroom detached property
Architect: The Howes Partnership
The construction of this dwelling was complicated by the fact that at one end of the building there was a 4 sided hip which had to be constructed by hand due to the fact that engineered trusses would not carry the loads imposed by the structure. The fact the site sloped from one end of the building to the other by 18 degrees made achieving the desired finished floor height a challenge.
The neo classical porch design enhances the overall look of this quality build.
Row of 5 terraced houses and 1 detached bungalow
Architect: Robert Seymour and associates
This development was purchased from us by West Country housing association in order to provide quality local housing.
Originally a 4 bed detached house on site which required demolition. The site had previously been used as a breakers yard and had contaminated land issues. A geological survey was conducted in order to meet the requirements specified by the environmental agency which consisted of removal of a large quantity of contaminated earth disposed of in line with current environmental guidelines and importation of clean certificated earth to reinstate the garden areas within the site.
In addition to the environmental challenges the development was located in a densely populated residential area.
Two 6 bedroom split level executive homes built to a high specification.
Architects: The Howes Partnership
For this project we were required to excavate to a depth of 4 meters and construct substantial retaining walls capable of dealing with immense back pressure.
Each property has split level accommodation over 5 floors which required accurate setting out to achieve the desired layout as specified by the architect.
