Intelligent, pragmatic & affordable design solutions.
Logic were invited by GallifordTry to join a team to bid for a £26M framework to deliver a 4 year programme of Extra Care projects for Registered Provider Coast & Country and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council.
The fourth extra care to be constructed will be a two storey apartment block of 40no. 1 & 2 bedrooms on a brownfield urban site
The tight brownfield site in Redcar is approached from the south east and thus the decision was taken to locate the entrance at this point for maximum exposure. To further aid the signposting of the entrance the corner of the roof was lifted to create a more dynamic roofscape in contrast to the various pitched roofs surrounding the site.
Working with appropriate separation distances from existing dwellings the proposed building form was set out to maximise the sites development potential.
Planning approval was granted in November 2015 with a proposed start date of 2017.
The scheme was developed in a collaborative multi disciplinary team using Revit to achieve BIM level 2.
