The Brief

Our commission is Phase II of this prestigious project which consists of approximately 800 units of residential accommodation with ground level retail and service areas. We inherited a RIBA Stage 3 design on which we carried out design reviews and delivered the technical design. We are Lead Consultant on the project which involves co-ordination of a skilled design team.   

Added Value

We have controlled the changes in the key factors of scope, schedule, budget, resources and risk to optimize quality of the project. It was also critical to establish the design that was necessary to satisfy client and end user needs and expectations, once delivered.

Technical Challenges

The project utilises a modern, prefabricated construction method whereby all major structural elements are constructed off site at a factory in the Netherlands. Structural façade panels, party walls and floor slabs all arrive on site to be lifted into place increasing efficiency and reducing the amount of work required on site. Co-ordination of this design is a critical part of our commission.
