Residential Development, Bexhill

Working for a private developer, this scheme was designed to deliver maximum yield from the site. Planning permission existed for the conversion of the existing dilapidated buildings to provide 25 residential units, by redeveloping the site it was anticipated that 50 apartments could be accommodated, however, this would have been economically unviable.

Through careful design consideration and working closely with the planning consultant during liaison with the local planning authority, planning permission was successfully achieved for 70 apartments.

This outcome was due to the quality of the design in addressing the constraints of the site, such as the accommodation of car parking in undercrofts beneath the buildings set into the sloping site, and also the integration of environmentally friendly solutions such as green roofing and the use of ground source heat pump heating systems.
