The project involved the construction of 20 luxury apartments in three blocks. The site is located along the prestigious Bury Road in Newmarket and the developer had to overcome fierce objections from some local residents. There were also several changes required by the planning authority as the development progressed.

However, the end result is a spectacular success. The three blocks are slightly set back from the road and so do not interfere with or compete with the existing historical buildings in the road. Also, because they are set back, each block enjoys stunning uninterrupted views across the Newmarket Gallops.

In respect of building control, the major challenges were to ensure adequate access for the fire and rescue service as the site layout has one block located to the rear of the site and to ensure that suitable fire precautions were included in the specification. MLM Building Control worked closely with the developer, and in particular site agent, to ensure that the timber frame erection and fire stopping works were satisfactory.

Access to the rear block was confirmed by ensuring that a suitable service road was included in the scheme.
