Boast Architects were appointed to obtain planning approval for a new chalet bungalow on land acquired by the client from a neighbour. Pre-application advice was obtained from Stevenage Borough Council and, following close consultation with planning officers, a detailed planning application was submitted for a design which reflected the architectural character of the Old Town and avoided overlooking issues to nearby properties. We have completed working drawings and tenders for construction have been received for an imminent start on site.
Boast Architects have produced working drawings for 40 bespoke dwellings in East Hanney for Martin Grant Homes. Revit software was used to model the house types in 3D and produce technical drawings for Building Regulations approval and construction.
Following our work on developments at Berryfields for Martin Grant Homes over some years, Boast Architects were appointed to produce working drawings for 19 apartments in two blocks either side of a central courtyard. Owing to restricted access at the entrance to the courtyard we produced a Fire Management Strategy Report which showed that the Fire Brigade’s access requirements were satisfied and that all rooms were located within 45 metres of the closest fire appliance. This avoided the need for fire sprinklers in all of the apartments and achieved a significant saving in construction cost.
