The Old Post Office, Monmouthshire
Category: New Builds
The brief: To vary the previously obtained planning consent to amend the design to meet the clients requirements and then deliver a technical design and drawing package for Building Regulations approval for the construction of a new dwelling.
Traditional form dormer style detached three bedroom property and an attached garage. The property benefits from a vaulted first floor ceiling to maximise the space. We worked closely with the trussed rafter manufacturer to ensure the design was as efficient as possible, meeting the needs of the client. The trussed rafter was an interesting technical solution with “boxed” girders, with trusses over and cut rafters to form the main roof slope. This provided the internal room configuration whilst offering a fast and efficient construction solution allowing for a cost effective and fast solution on site too.
Our role: Architectural design, Planning consent (variation of previous approval), Technical design service and drawing package and obtaining Building Regulations approval.
Timeline: Apex appointed Winter 2018, Planning consent awarded in Spring 2019, Building Regulations approval awarded in Summer 2019 , Building works on site and completed in Summer 2020.
