We were delighted to hear that planning permission was approved for 23 homes for council rent at Partridge Way in London. This is an exciting programme of council led housing to provide new homes for council rent to local residents.
The new apartments are a mix of one bedroom and two-bedroom homes including two fully wheelchair accessible units. Partridge Way is part of a wider programme of social housing driven by the London Borough of Haringey that aims to deliver a 1000 new council homes at council rents by 2022.
The scheme is highly energy efficient and uses Solar Panels, Air Source Heat Pumps and Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation to achieve a considerable 64% carbon saving over conventional building regulation compliant homes.
We are providing support to Harringay Council working alongside Pinchin Architects to produce the structural design of the 10 storey RC framed structure, which includes:
- 10 storey Reinforced concrete frame for a development of residential apartments
- Structural slab thicknesses need to be kept to absolute minimum so that overall building height is kept within the approved height of 30m
- There is a subsequently challenging design for slab deflections and vibrations without introducing excessive columns/transfer structures into the floor plans
- The façade will be brick clad with masonry support systems cast into the slab edges
