The client’s vision for Bircherley was for it to become the leading sheltered house scheme within its region, to provide innovative and quality-driven housing.

“This project is not just about re-development, but it is about providing an exciting, interactive and vibrant community resource. The ultimate vision is for Bircherley Court to become a flagship sustainable development that is a signpost for the future that people will enjoy living in and using”. (Riversmead HA)

The project involved the alterations and refurbishment of existing Bircherley Court and Mews buildings to provide modern sheltered living units. The link extension creates additional apartments and communal facilities, including residents lounge and roof garden.

The key challenges for this project were the adaption of the existing buildings and inclusion of communal facilities. This involved a flexible design approach involving extensive consultation with Riversmead Housing Association, the architect, contractor and Fire Service.

We worked to ensure the client’s brief was maintained whilst ensuring the design was compliant with the Building Regulations.
