The development included retaining two existing buildings, both of which were over a hundred years old. Both buildings had to be remodeled extensively complete with new M&E services installations. The remodeling included converting an existing chapel into an event space complete with a full audio visual installation.
The development is built on a hillside which resulted in the blocks being built on 3 different levels which gave its own challenges especially as the energy centre is situated on the highest level. In addition to these issues we also had to ensure that bats residing in the existing buildings were catered for in the design even to the extent of all external lighting being designed to ensure that flight paths to bat entrances on the existing buildings were not illuminated.
