ISAAC’S AT THE QUAY
Project: Construction of a three storey extension, balcony & canopy
Client: Isaac Lord
Services provided: CDM Services
Contract Value: Undisclosed
Wherry Quay is a vibrant, thriving, mixed community of bars, restaurants and residential accommodation overlooking the historic waterfront in the popular Suffolk town of Ipswich.
Issacs at the Quay is a Public House, bar and restaurant with function rooms located in the heart of Wherry Quay. The project was to extend and update the accommodation available at the venue; the scheme included demolition works and the construction of a three storey extension to serve as a Pizzeria, Bar and accommodation, and an additional single storey extension with a balcony and canopy above adjoining existing historic buildings on the waterfront.
Daniel Connal Partnership provided CDM Services on the project. The existing building remained occupied and trading throughout the development and this provided one of the major challenges; working around the live environment in the adjoining existing building and ensuring unhindered access at all times.
Access to the site via the waterfront road was shared with a high volume of pedestrian traffic and motor vehicles visiting other venues and properties at Wherry Quay. A further challenge was maintaining access to these properties for customers, residents and the emergency services during the development.
