Frankham appointed to undertake role of Principal Designer
Frankham Consultancy Group were appointed to undertake the role of Principal Designer on behalf of One Housing Group under the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015.
This project forms part of a multiple phase scheme of which we have completed 4, 5, 6 and are currently working on Phases 7 & 8.
Frederick Street, Ampton Street and Ampton Place are located in King’s Cross and are terraces of 85 grade two listed Georgian houses currently converted to 220 maisonettes and flats.
All of the existing properties are Georgian homes, converted to maisonettes and flats between 1980s and 1990s.
It is now necessary to undertake refurbishment works to ensure these listed buildings provide residents with a property of a modern standard along with appropriate facilities.
As Principal Designer we have played a key role in assisting with the phasing of works and ensuring items relating to health and safety are considered and communicated to the wider project team.
The works have been successfully delivered, and the Client was reassured they were fulfilling their legal duties under current legislation whilst also providing their tenants with updated quality homes.
Decanting residents and resident liaison were of particular importance on this project.
It has been necessary to review the Clients current procedures and advise where improvements could be made in order to minimise disruption to residents during the course of works.
