BoonBrown was initially appointed as the lead consultant architect and landscape architect to produce the coordinated technical design of the first phase that comprises 227 dwellings with a mix of terraced townhouses, podium deck and mansion block apartments. With this stage 4 design completed, our appointment is now extended to include a further 482 apartments. Phase 2 where accommodation is grouped into four pods comprising apartments and town-houses around a car park zone.

This BIM 2 co-ordination project has a number of challenges, particularly in the below-ground co-ordination of the utilities, the district heating and Envac waste management system.
