BYRON VIEW, CHELMSFORD
Project: 12 New Homes on former garage site
Client: Milcombe Homes
Services provided: Contract Administration, Quantity Surveying
Contract value: £2.5m
This site, to the rear of existing houses, and adjacent to a large area of public open space and allotments on the edge of Chelmsford City centre, offered an ideal opportunity for the client to re-develop a brownfield area into a small, exclusive housing scheme.
DCP was appointed as Quantity Surveyor and Contract Administrator on the project which was designed by Arcady Architects. The contractor was Hills Building Group.
The plan for the gated development was designed to make the most of the available space on the site of former garages. Twelve 3 and 4 bedroom properties were constructed, many benefiting from open views across the adjacent public open space.
The constraints of the site – which had a single access point – necessitated careful planning to ensure that free access was maintained throughout the construction period.
