This project was of an innovative design to optimise the use of an extremely restricted site, to provide 14 units for Southern Housing Group, including two fully accessible bungalow units. As Employers Agent, RLP coordinated the design and employed value management techniques to ensure that the scheme remained within budget and fully compliant with funding requirements. The scheme achieved an EcoHomes rating of very good incorporating green roofs to assist with rainwater attenuation, and utilising Ground Source Heat Pump technology to provide 10% of the energy requirements from on-site renewable sources. Despite the restrictions of the site and high quality finishing requirements, we delivered the project on programme and within budget. The scheme has subsequently been nominated for an architectural design award.
