Church Close

Project: CHURCH CLOSE, BRATTON FLEMING Client: North Devon Homes Contractor: Gadd Construct Construction of 15 Houses The works comprise the design, construction and completion of 15 general needs houses (5 shared ownership and 10 for rent) together with all associated external works; roads, footpaths, parking areas, drainage, general external works, services and landscaping. The development was tendered and procured under a JCT Design and Build contract. Gates working with both the Client and the Contractor oversaw the delivery of a successful project despite difficulties due to restraints of the steepness of the site, the location of existing electrical services and no gas service being available in the area. Despite no gas being available, the scheme was carefully designed and specified to ensure that all units were accredited with an EcoHomes rating of 'Very Good.' This means the houses had to be constructed in a timber frame panelled system which was highly insulated and the inclusion of sustainable technology such as solar panels.
