We teamed up with Chesterman Homes once again. This time, we helped them with a new build project in Angmering.

We took the project from initial concept through to construction level information, including a tender process and various value engineering exercises. Work on site finished early 2021.

First, we produced some early concepts to see what was achievable on the site, working to our client’s early brief (number of dwellings required and maximum footprint in relation to costs).

Initially, we applied for outline planning for a pair of semi-detached houses to get the principle of the development approved by the Council under reserved matters.

The concept was then translated into a set of planning (RIBA 3) drawings*, taking into account local authority requirements and standards as well as our client’s ideals in terms of materials, spaces, value and brand.  We then submitted an application to clear reserved matters and obtain planning approval.

*We designed with construction and building regulations in mind, to ensure the final planning approval was buildable.

We then developed and finalised building regulation plans and information, working with a structural engineer to ensure a fully coordinated and achievable building. This led to a full plans submission to private building control and subsequent sign-off.

We then produced a detailed construction package, developed the drawings, details and information to add additional specifications. We worked alongside the quantity surveyor, assisting with the tender process and selection of appropriate contractor. 

Our most recent task was to value engineer the project with the selected contractor to come up with suitable alternatives to the scheme that offered further value and savings to the client. Minor variations were made to the planning application to take any changes into account.
