Project Challenges

The original design concept of the project included traditional bathrooms, however, it was soon realised that this had to be changed to pods. As a result of this, the drainage connections to the pods became extremely difficult. Furthermore  it was quickly realised that there was not sufficient access for air testing of the drainage system, in order to gain access, holes had to be cut in the finished building fabric. The HE Simm Construction Team worked tirelessly, around the clock, to get the drainage system ready in time for inspection by the building control officer.

The Results

We have successfully handed over three phases of the Emerald Gardens development with completion of the final phase due in August 2016.
