What We Did

This scheme comprises part of the wider redevelopment of Edge Lane with the building of 145 affordable luxury homes in partnership with Liverpool City Council. The homes are targeted at young professionals and working families. 107 one, two and three bed apartments will be available via Rent to Buy, many with an ensuite bedroom as well as a bathroom. Each apartment will have car parking and cycle parking and the majority will have either a garden area or roof terrace. The project also includes 38 contemporary two and three-bedroom homes for sale via Shared Ownership which will benefit from gardens and car parking.

Davies Partnership designed the MEP services to RIBA Stage 4 before developing the scheme to RIBA Stage 5 post tender on behalf of the MEP Contractor. Design and Build Specifications were produced and sustainability services provided which included non-domestic Part L Dynamic Simulation Modelling and SAP calculations.

Duties include monitoring MEP installation quality with an MEP highlights of high efficiency condensing boilers with positive input ventilation systems in dwellings, and photovoltaic arrays on the two large apartment blocks helping to reduce building energy consumption and offset the carbon emissions associated with electrical panel heaters within.
