Sovini Group (One Vision Housing)
We were appointed via the JV North Framework to design new homes on the site of a redundant playing fields in Pensby, The Wirral.
We provided a number of different design options to assess the maximum density of units to inform the viability process and managed further investigations to deal with a number of site abnormals.
In line with client tenure requirements and the use of client standard house types, we ultimately delivered a design that would provide 35 homes including bungalows, 2 & 3 bed houses on the site for a mix of affordable rent, shared ownership and rent to buy. Energy efficiencies were designed on a fabric first approach that surpasses the minimum target emission rates.
The scheme achieved planning submission and the construction phase was delivered by the client’s own contractor Carroll Build, with our design services novated.
We have also prepared site layout plans for delivery of a further 24 homes on this site through the proposed purchase of the adjoining children’s centre.
