A member of our Design team, Tina Humphreys, recently made a site visit to view construction progress on a project that we received planning permission for back in February. Planning & Design had worked on this project back in 2016 when we initially obtained planning consent for the replacement of an agricultural barn with a dwelling in the Kirk Langley Conservation area. The client came back to us last year to make some amendments to the scheme, the main one being the addition of a basement level which opens out onto a private sunken patio area.
The site owners have made a good start with the basement construction. The below ground construction is of ICF (Insulated Concrete Form) which consists of premade forms of foam that fit together like large interlocking Lego blocks. They are connected together with a plastic framework and then concrete is poured in between. Above ground the external walls will be constructed using SIPS (Structural Insulated Panels). We look forward to following the progress of this innovative project through the construction period and will no doubt provide images of the finished article in due course.
