On Site Works Progressing Well

We currently have a number of projects on site which are at different stages of construction and completion. These have provided some challenges both in the form of construction in regards to the integration of a sunken wine cellar and tide pool, as well as working within tight site constraints and existing building conditions.

Hopefully within the next month 3 of these projects will be completed with another due for completion in the new year. We also have another 2 projects starting within the next few weeks and will hopefully have some news on these projects in the near future.

Planning Approvals

Its been a very busy week in the office with planning permission granted for a number of projects ranging from the redevelopment of a redundant school building into residential properties, a number of extensions to create additional living space and change of use from agricultural land to domestic use.

These applications have required on-going monitoring and liaison with different local authorities including Taunton Deane Borough Council, South Somerset, Mendip & West Dorset Councils.

Next year we will upload some of these projects as they are completed on site.

Alterations & Extension, Bishop Sutton

Works are currently on-going with the renovation and extension of an existing 2 bedroom bungalow to a 4 bedroom family home in Bishop Sutton, Somerset. The work involves a new side and rear extension creating a large open plan family space consisting of living, dining room and kitchen with large boot space and utility. The front of the ground floor has been reconfigured to provide a master bedroom with en-suite and an additional guest bedroom. At first floor 2 new bedrooms have been created with a family bathroom.

Single Storey Extension, Langport, Somerset

The project consisted of a single storey rear extension to create an enlarged family living space taking advantage of opening out onto the rear enclosed garden. The proposals needed to utilise the existing stone boundary walls and gable wall of the house. In addition to the family living space, a multi-purpose cloak room/rear lobby was formed to improve the layout of the house.

The project is currently at the building regulations stage of work and we await full plans sign off.

Side and Rear Extension, Taunton, Somerset

Single storey rear extension and internal alterations to a three-storey semi-detached town house. The property was located within a conservation area and therefore the larger two storey element was designed to respect and respond to the existing brick detailing, window fenestration etc. with the single storey rear extension being a new modern component to the design.

The site has restricted access and therefore it was essential to ensure the construction methods chosen for the new build elements responded to this and were designed in.

The project has commenced on site with footings now in.
