Canning Ericsson demolished a bungalow which it replaced with a five-unit apartment block comprising two ground floor flats, two first floor flats and a top-floor flat incorporated into the building’s pitched roof.
The block is constructed on 600mm deep strip foundations built onto chalk bedrock. It has a reinforced concrete ground-bearing ground floor slab and cast in situ concrete first and second floors. Both the inner and outer leafs of the external cavity walls are constructed using H+H’s Thin-Joint System. Thin joint has also been used to construct the double-skin separating walls between apartments and the single skin internal partition walls. The apartment block has a pitched roof with a clay tile covering.
