Set in a sloping site in Bournemouth, the design for this building entailed cutting into the site and using a combination of retaining walls and crib lock walling to create a platform from which to construct 12 high end apartments with a contract value of £800k. We were engaged by the Developer to provide Party Wall services enabling the development to proceed smoothly.
Providing Party Wall services to the Developers, this project is transforming an under-used car park area into a vibrant development consisting of a 10 storey residential tower block with 112 apartments and adjacent public car park with 245 car parking spaces.
In 2013 this site was released for re-development by Bournemouth Borough Council, as part of its Town Centre Master Vision. We provided essential Party Wall Services to the Developers to allow three blocks of much-needed student accommodation for the Arts University Bournemouth as well as a car park with 382 spaces for use by local residents, commuters, shoppers and businesses. It features an attractive series of large, bright aluminium ‘fins’ in eight graduating shades from pale yellow through to bright orange and has become a familiar landmark easily visible from the Wessex Way.
Working with the University of Portsmouth, we were employed to act as Party Wall surveyors for this £9 million building programme. Combining heritage conservation with modern technology the grade II listed building was expanded with a fly tower and four-storey extension housing a brand new double height studio theatre allowing the New Theatre Royal to become a key cultural and educational hub in the South Coast.
