Phoenix House Phase 2 update – Sept 15

After planning permission was granted to provide two penthouse flats in the roof void and two new three storey Townhouses at the end of Phoenix House, work started at a pace.

Despite the wettest August in a century with rainfall in West Sussex totalling 144.2mm, the team have progressed very well with Phase 2 and are ahead of programme!

Reduce levels excavated and set out to receive raft foundations for the new Townhouses

East Grinstead Update

There are 2 main trades on site at Phoenix House; the window frames are going in and the internal walling system is being installed ready for plastering.  The external woks have been approved by the planning department and the cladding has been ordered.  So the building will take shape over the next month and from the outside we’ll see a near finished product.  Internally there is a lot of work to do, but it’s an exciting time watching the product come together.

East Grinstead Update

As previously reported the site has been completely stripped back and some rebuilding work continued pre-Christmas.  We have to some degree been delaying any major internal works whilst we acquire planning permission for the external works and changes to the fenestration.  With no windows in and access readily obtained we felt it best not to install attractive materials that could be stolen or damaged.  I’m pleased to report we now have that planning permission and work to install the windows starts Monday(19th).

The planning permission is to tone down the harsh 80’s brickwork by a system of blue cladding that is popular in this particular area.  Here is an artist’s impression of the accepted changes to the fenestration;

Phoenix House Site Update

Phoenix House has now been completely stripped back and ready to be rebuilt.

A decision on the planning application for the fenestration is expected 28 Nov 14.  We have applied to tone down the external appearance to transform it from a harsh office building to a ‘more gentle on the eye’ residential scheme.

We have 2 plumbers on site installing foul water drainage.

We have ‘saw cut’ access holes to the 1st and 2nd floor slabs for pipe and cable access points.

We are to implement a sprinkler system to the building, rather than installing smoke vents.  It is more cost effective.
