Project: Anderton Place
Employer: Wulvern Housing
Procurement Framework: Not applicable
Programme: 78 weeks
Works Description: Design and construction of 58 one and two bedroom apartments in an extra care development for the over 55’s.
The land, in Northwich, was identified by Cruden Construction and our partner, Bayerton and sold to Wulvern Housing as a package deal. Our pre-construction team achieved planning approval and building regulations within the client’s timeframe, value-engineering the scheme to achieve the budget and ensuring that the design achieved Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
All the apartments met HCA guidance on recommended floor areas. Lifetime Homes criteria was fully implemented and the scheme achieved ‘Secured by Design’ status.
In addition to the apartments, shared facilities include: a bistro café, kitchens, function rooms, hairdressers and beauty salon, gym room, health and well-being suite, assisted bathing facilities laundry, reception, offices and meeting rooms.
The scheme was a finalist in the 2015 LABC Building Excellence Awards.
