15 new build apartments, Ferndown

Client: Chris James Construction
Location: Carroll Avenue, Ferndown, Dorset
Contractor: Chris James Construction Ltd
Budget: £2.4m

Project brief:

Our brief was to produce a full, co-ordinated set of technical construction drawings for the project. If only it were that simple.


What we did:
Pier Architecture were appointed to produce and manage the construction information to provide a full set of co-ordinated information suitable to discharge all planning conditions, obtain a building regulations approval, tender figures for the various packages and construction.

Before we could do any of that, the building internal layout had to be redesigned to incorporate all the essential building elements that the original designers neglected to think about, for example, SVP’s, service risers, enclosed fire escapes etc.

Once this was complete we directly appointed the entire design and site investigation teams to produce all necessary information including, Civil, Structural, SI, Topo, drainage surveys, M&E designs and much more.
