On our Moorhead scheme we will be looking at more innovative ways to build within the regulations and to provide fully compliant homes.
- The site has an approved planning consent for 20 apartments over 5 floors in Block G and 12 apartments over 6 floors in Block F. We will be tweaking this to give a more mixed spread based on the local requirements of the area. The two ground floor units will be adapted to meet special needs, the upper floors will provide 5 two-bed and 5 one-bed units. A lift will also be installed.
- Challenges on this site include the bankruptcy of the previous developers on the project. We await verification of the current works on site so that they meet the required warranty approvals. The site is also very tight which will mean that locating ourselves, our suppliers and materials will not be straightforward.
- The site was handed over in April 2021, the build contract took 18 months which continued through COVID-19 restrictions.
MEDIUM TO HIGH RISE BUILDINGS
ASD Build specialises in the construction of Medium to High Rise Buildings (MHRB). We have a strong engineering and technical background which enables ASD to fully understand the constraints and requirements when building upwards. We strongly believe in a sustainable MHRB, with good design, quality build practices through modern methods of construction (MMC), masonry systems, Concrete frame (CF) or traditional steel. Environment, placemaking, and the local economy are at the forefront of the design and build process developed by ASD Build.
As well as being able to work in a pre-construction services agreement (PCSA) or Design & Build (D&B) contract formula, ASD is vastly experienced in developing all types of buildings. We use external planners, architects, engineers with many other pre-construction practices & professionals to enable the development to proceed to the full construction phase.
To complete the construction works, ASD engages with many building consultants to meet legislation and building control requirements. This will mean coordinating the collaboration of fire consultants with building and structural engineers to enable the building to meet its legal requirements whilst also being mindful of internal fit-out arrangements to create a home.
