Project Description

This project comprises the demolition of existing garages and the design and construction of 2 semi-detached, two-bedroom houses at Crispin Road; 4 detached, two-bedroom bungalows at Mayhill Road; 2 detached, two-bedroom bungalows at Quinta Drive, and 2 semi-detached, two- bedroom bungalows at Ryecroft Crescent, in the London Borough of Barnet. The bungalows are wheelchair accessible and adapted internally to suit the occupants’ needs. In accordance with local demand, this project offers affordable, high quality residential accommodation that responds to and integrates with the existing surrounding context.

Construction Methods

  • Timber frame is used in all units and brick is the predominant external material across the scheme, robust and aesthetically pleasing
  • Units at Crispin Road have rendered walls on timber batten subconstruction and timber laminate floors in the living room and circulation areas
  • PV panels on the roof

Design, Construction and Site Management Solutions
The units, which are to be completed simultaneously, have a permanently based on site engineer during the initial stages while groundworks and main structures are being carried out. There is also a roaming site manager and an assistant located permanently on the Mayhill site, as this has the most units to be completed. Our HSEQ manager visits the sites regularly, undertaking inspection audits to ensure the locations are safe for the public and all site operatives. As the works are being carried out in a densely populated housing area, engagement with local residents is critical and includes meetings and newsletters to keep them abreast of progress and any likely impacts.
