Alongside this we are also delivering construction of new road layout and alterations to existing highway, provision of an energy centre, refurbishment of a local community centre, demolition and structural alterations to other existing buildings, approximately 539 m2 (GEA) of retail space, approximately 3,977 m2 (GEA) of commercial space, site works including landscaping, and construction of a two level basement.
The new build homes are designed to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes level 4 with a Gas Fired CHP and gas boilers providing space heating and hot water to all residential homes and the extra care block.
We have opted to use an innovative form of construction whereby we will be constructing the RC Superstructure using a system of precast components together with the early introduction into construction sequence of prefabricated panels.
