Birling Avenue - Social Housing
The Birling Avenue development is located in Rainham, in the West of Kent, and is the site of the former Rainham Police Station. Planning approval was granted for a block of apartments constituting of one and two bedroom units. We were engaged to produce the technical package, post planning approval. MHS Homes purchased the site, a Medway based Housing Association and it has been constructed by Chartway, a local contractor.
Within the design we adapted two of the dwellings to become wheelchair compliant and the entire scheme to be Lifetime Homes compliant. The scheme also complies with the code for sustainable houses, level 4. Completion of the project is due in Autumn, 2014.
