This scheme for a private Client involves the undertaking of design services to remodel an existing two-storey dwelling. The dwelling has previously been remodelled and extended to the rear to provide an additional Bedroom to a new First Floor level, and enalrged living accommodation to the Ground Floor.

The Client requires the adaptation of the Ground Floor to provide wheelchair accessibility to the living accommodation, and to all external areas. Therefore, the brief includes the creation of an accessible Wetroom and Kitchen; the provision of a new Master Bedroom to the Ground Floor; level access to the front and side entrances, and rear terrace; the widening of doors to the Ground Floor accommodation for wheelchair accessibility; and, the provision of a new guest Bathroom to the First Floor.

We are appointed to provide architectural services from Inception to Completion, which have included initial design development, and the production of information for a competitive tendering process. We completed a Tender Package for the Works including a Specification and Preliminaries; layout and detail Drawings; and, a Schedule of Works. Following which, a successful Contractor was appointed, and we are now acting as Contract Administrator for the Works, which commenced in September 2019. The completion date is set for January 2020.

The Works are progressing on Site, and include the completion of the stripping out works; the forming of new internal and external openings; the commencement of the dry-lining works to the external walls; and, the construction of a new timber floor to the Wetroom.
