A development of two semi-detached houses fronting the Royal Military Canal on the Sussex coast.
The client had originally bought a house on this site with a view to refurbishment for re-sale. During the course of the measured survey numerous indications of structural defects were noted and a recommendation made that a full structural survey be undertaken.
It was subsequently determined that the existing house was suffering from significant structural failure and a scheme developed for demolition and replacement with a pair of houses.
Following an extended negotiation with the local planning authority consent was granted. Detailed drawings were prepared for use by the client's in-house construction team.
