    FOUR NEW AFFORDABLE DWELLINGS

    On behalf of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, a planning application has been submitted for four new units, providing 100% affordable housing on a site in Twickenham. The building has been designed to respond to the site context, keeping development to a minimum.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    FIVE NEW ALMSHOUSES

    We have now submitted an application for five new contemporary, single-storey almshouses on a garage site in Richmond on behalf of The Richmond Charities. A mix of four full wheelchair use dwellings and one accessible/adaptable dwelling, they have been designed to mitigate any visual impact, allowing ease of accessibility for the future residents.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    CONSTRUCTION ON AN ISLAND

    Ever wondered how construction happens on an island with footbridge-only access? Apart from numerous trips backwards and forwards over the bridge with wheelbarrows, sometimes only a barge delivery will do.  Today we witnessed the delivery of Onsen Energy's ground-source heat pump installation equipment, by river, as part of the refurbishment of a Building of Townscape Merit on The Thames. Ground source heat pump piping will be inserted into a 130 metre drilled vertical bore hole in the ground to access the geothermal energy.
