The scheme provides 37 contemporary apartments for retired residents. The proposal consists of predominantly an L shaped building over 5 storeys on the sea front in Falmouth.
Symmetrys reviewed the options for both the substructure and superstructure in great detail. In reviewing the options available for the structural form we developed detailed matrixes that included items such as:
- Architectural aspirations and build costs
- Programme implications
- Site access
- Party walls
- Span to depth ratio’s
- M & E requirements
- Structural alignment benefits
- Optimal apartment layouts
- Sub structure solutions
- Product/material availability and regional sourcing
- Local labour resources
