 SITECROFT'S ROLE: Detailed design, building regulations and construction on a fixed price contract. SCHEME: Completed in mid 2007 by Sitecroft Limited this scheme was an unconventional design requiring considerable detailing in respect of weathering, service entry positions means of escape, and in depth negotiations with both Building Control and the Fire Officer. The scheme of 20 affordable flats and three substantial commercial shop units presented major problems with ground conditions which were contaminated and very variable requiring a major engineering solution, there was also very little space available for the construction of the significant building which at one point is four stories in height. The scheme was competed ahead of programme and on budget. Build time 13 months
