New-build Housing Croydon

New-Build Housing Scheme in Croydon

 

FORM have been commissioned to provide specialist architectural and engineering expertise through the preparation of working drawings, on site administration and construction.

 

Now well underway on site, the development will result in the erection of a three-storey building with accommodation in the roof space (comprising 6 x two bedroom and 1 x three bedroom apartment) and 2 x four bedroom, semi-detached houses including amenity space, car parking and landscaping.

 

The development will provide some much needed housing in a suburban area of Croydon, a highly desirable location within South East London.

The Challenge

FORM were appointed to review proposals for a consented development on a very constrained  site which presented a number of construction challenges.

 

The challenge therefore was to take the concept that was approved by Croydon Council and provide the necessary expertise to help to ensure a smooth transition into the construction phase.

 

FORM have also been corresponding with Croydon Council in discharging planning conditions attached to the approved planning permission.

 

Working with the client, contractor and other specialist consultants, FORM have been assisting in the management of the project.

The Solution

The scheme drawings were developed and the design rationalised  to give a cost effective design solutions within a very tight timescale. This has been of particular importance given the constraints in terms of sourcing materials from purveyors which has been causing issues for developers throughout the country.

The Result

The scheme is now on site and construction works progressing well.
