Planning Consent at Park House

We are very pleased to announce that our scheme at Park House, East Anton was has been met favourably by the planning ​committee at Test Valley.  The scheme of four detached private houses, designed in a barn style around a private courtyard, has been carefully developed to make best use of the site whilst minimising the impact on the neighbouring properties.

​We have continued to demonstrate the beneifits of the BIM adoption on all schemes.  Utilising the full benefits of Autodesk Revit, we have been able to provide a considered response to the adjacent properties by utilising the analysis tools to examine potential overlooking and shadowing.

​Construction works are programmed to start in the summer.

Works Complete at Nile Street

We are pleased to announce that work has completed on two prestigious ​town houses in the centre of historic Emsworth.  The two 3 bedroom properties with integral garages, based on the site of a former industrial unit, have maximised the potential of the site and taken advantage of views across Emsworth millpond to the estuary beyond. 

This project is the first completed scheme the practice has taken from planning through to construction utilising the BIM software - Autodesk Revit.  The software has been of particular benefit in assessing the impact on neighbouring properties during the planning process and an invaluable tool when coordinating​ the tricky steel and curtain glazing design on the south facing gables.  

The contractor has reported that the scheme has been delivered on time and on budget.  The properties are currently being marketed locally.
