Major Project – Lesley Court

We recently completed our new build residential scheme in Loughton. This project involved the construction of 12 new build flats on the site of a car park to the rear of the shopping area of Loughton High Road.

We were also responsible for the full internal fit out and decoration with the flats handed over to the client ready for use. The ground floor car park was constructed using an RC frame while the 1st and 2nd floors used timber frame construction holding 6 flats per floor each with a balcony. This was a combination of brick skin and colour free render with aluminium windows and doors.

As this was a new build project we were required to run entirely new services to the site including telecomms, drainage, water, gas, and electricity. Solar PV was installed on the roof as part of energy efficiency measures including energy efficient gas boilers and LED lighting throughout
