Residential Design and Build - York, North Yorkshire

CLIENT: Norstar Ltd
SECTOR: Residential
TYPE: Refurbishment
LOCATION: York, North Yorkshire

24 new private sale studio apartments in York city centre.

The Project

Design and Build in YorkWe are delighted to have been appointed by our new client, Norstar Ltd, to refurbish a relatively new office block into a 24 luxury apartments. The site access is shared with a working office off a busy city centre route. The structure is around 10 years old and of a steel framed design with large open plan areas. Work is required to remove all internal elements including all services, internal walls and suspended ceiling system. Due to the increase of properties within the building we need to increase incoming supplies meaning a new electrical substation needs to be built along, a new larger water supply and structural alterations to make the building suitable for 24 apartments.

The Challenge

Completing the complicated design process in a very short time frame.
Ensuring that works in/ around the nearby office building are undertaken with no negative impact or disruption to the staff by consultation with the office manager about planned work and good forward planning of large deliveries.
Co-ordination of all new incoming services and statutory connections/disconnections is critical to achieving the required handover dates for completion.
