Key issues

The site was located on the junction of a main road and as such had planning constraints that meant that normal building control methods had to be adapted to ensure sound and ventilation could both be compliant for building control purposes.

This site was constricted in terms of location for deliveries, and the planning constraints for sound and the need for background ventilation. The team at Lovell’s, working alongside Building Control had the willingness to resolve any issues that arose which was key to delivering a quality project.

What our team thinks

John Egginton - Area Building Control Surveyor, "apT’s officers worked well with Lovell‘s to deliver the project and to resolve any issues that arose which were key to delivering a quality scheme.  With these houses being constructed to provide valuable affordable accommodation, whilst also generating income for the Local Authority, the project clearly demonstrated how the aims, management and delivery of the project, through to the building techniques on this site have been forward thinking, innovative and problem solving."
