Rowlett Road, Corby

June 6, 2011 10:45 am

The former brownfield site, located in the town centre of Corby, was previously occupied by a dilapidated community building and some redundant residential garages.

An attractive new £3.8 million affordable housing development for the Leicester Housing Association has helped to regenerate this part of Corby.

The scheme consists of 27 affordable homes ranging from two-bedroomed flats to three-storey, four-bedroomed houses. The homes qualified for a BREEAM “Very Good” rating and the choice of construction materials and a sustainable drainage solution was part of this submission.

Innovation

The complex sustainable drainage solution had to be incorporated on a very tight site and the design assessment for the traditional superstructure to the development included the ‘whole’ structure not structural elements in isolation which resulted in a very economic design with associated financial benefits for the client. Our 3D modelling for civils and structures really does support Waldeck’s claim to be masters of ‘lean engineering’.
