Construction Starts in Cheltenham
KODA architects are excited that construction work has started in Cheltenham after long discussions with Cheltenham Borough Council.
Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent was obtaining earlier this year for the complete renovation and a first floor extension to this a fine early Victorian property in Regency style. The property is located within Cheltenham’s Central Conservation area and is grade II listed. Extensive research was carried out as part of the design phase which informed our proposals, ensuring the proposals did not damage its significance but added to the history of the building. This rigorous methodology underpins KODA architects approach to adapting historic buildings. In this instance it greatly assisted during our discussions with the Planning Department and provided a sound justification for the proposals.
Works have started in earnest with site clearance and strip out. Already the first floor structure has been installed, ready for the removal of the roof and commencement of work on the first floor extension. To give our extension a subservient aesthetic, the new external walls of the first floor extension are inset away from the existing walls. This allows the leanto roof still be read and the contrasting nickel cladding adds a carefully considered addition. Following a detailed design stage, KODA architects Cheltenham, held discussions with contractors throughout and contractors took possession of the site in late September. KODA architects are working closely with Leckhampton Builders of Cheltenham to deliver the high quality product, fitting for this fine Villa property.
KODA are appointed as Contract Administrators to oversee the construction work and will be regularly visiting site over the next couple of months. We regularly update our social media feeds, so stay tuned for progress onsite and the big unveiling of the extension. We will be regularly keeping you up to date with this project through out Regency Extension in Cheltenham portfolio page.
We cant wait!
