Following a successful design and planning process, works have commenced on site. Collaborating closely with main contractor Engie, IDP have prepared a full suite of detailed design information for the various unit types being used throughout the development.
The development uses six different building typologies:
Alongside this, the development also utilises four different M&E Strategies:
And finally, a number of the units are provided with an enhanced building fabric.
It is hoped, by assessing and reviewing different combinations of the above variables alongside short, medium and long term monitoring, all parties involved will be able to gain invaluable insight from a cost, flexibility, buildability, speed, quality and liveability perspective. As a result, the development is expected to inform Home Group’s forward planning aimed at achieving their goal of building 10,000 homes by 2021 / 2022.
