This appointment refers to a new build development situated on a prominent corner where Eastcote Lane intersects with Alexandra Avenue in Harrow. Once the Matrix pub, the site has been cleared following Planning approval for a five-storey residential development accommodating 60 apartments and one dwelling with underground parking.
This project calls for the regeneration of an existing brownfield site, maximising its potential with the introduction of a new residential development. Taking the project forward, Lawray developed technical and production drawings to support this concrete frame development with extensive underground parking for the apartments above. The apartments underwent a review to ensure space planning and fit out met with London guides and the demands of the current marketplace/area.
This project is another positive example of Lawray’s ‘Design and Build’ and Revit 3D capability, being appointed from Stage 4 onwards and inheriting a scheme with planning approval in place. Lawray set to work carrying out its own due diligence, developing a 3D Revit model, setting up processes to discharge conditions in a timely manner whilst reviewing such criteria as Building Regulations, Fire Strategy/Protection, London Guides and the like. Having reviewed the construction programme our team organised resources for technical delivery, enabling positive co-ordination with other disciplines involved via workshops and Revit model. Having such a model in place, helped integrate MEP, Structure and architecture at an early stage via clash detection providing a seamless construction approach on site.
