What was the client’s brief?

The client on this occasion already had their design and planning permission approved, Our job was to provide a turn key project to include demolition of the old building and reconstruct a new bespoke high spec chalet, finished with high end triple glazed windows, Larch cladding and a stunning curved roof. All of this to be carried down a cliff without vehicle access to the plot.

What did we do?

Technical challenges in the design of the curved roof and providing adequate strength to include large area sliding doors on both South and West elevations caused considerable challenges in the construction design and this particular property required steel beams on the East elevation in order to provide suitable strength.

The project also needed to be completed within a specific time frame and was completed on time within budget
