This project was delivered under a JCT Design & Build Contract. Drew Smith Limited, acting as Principal Contractor provided pre-construction management services to the client, Southampton City Council, to support development plans for this 54 unit Extra Care facility.
This collaborative project facilitated dialogue with previously decanted residents who would return to the new development once completed. This scheme was constructed in traditional cavity masonry, with pre-cast concrete floors and staircases. It had a timber joisted flat roof construction, composite timber/aluminium windows and doors, aluminium glazed curtain walling and steel framed architectural balconies.
The team worked with local schools and colleges to provide the opportunity for students to visit the site to support with career advice specifically relating to the construction industry.
