The development at Colebrook Road is a mixed use retail & commercial to retail & residential including new build housing. The Design Collective were appointed following the site being obtained to review the current infrastructure to support the proposed plans for redevelopment. The incoming services where possible were maintained and trabnsferred to the new properties. the reorganistion of services required disconnections of supplies to enable the works to progress aswell as new services and relocating some of the existing. TDC liasied closely with JVIP nad the regional supply authorities to provide the infrastructure solution to best suit the separate deises of the overall scheme.
The site under its original form included a mixed use site with a combination of shops, offices, residential and lock up garages.
The building has now been converted to include a shop unit at ground floor level with the addition of 6 apartments and 2 new build houses. TDC provided the complete design of the M&E services within each of the apartments and houses, to meet both the local planning requirements and energy targets. the focus of the development was to maximise the space for each property on this very tight site. routing of services through the communal spaces and within each demise was therefore critical.
