Green Street

Client: Blueprint

Value: £8million

Green Street

The scheme comprised 38 high quality 3 and 4 bedroom homes in the Green Street/Fraser Road area adjacent to the Victoria Gardens on the Trent Embankment. Designed by Nottingham architect’s Marsh Grochowski, the houses reflect Blueprint’s high standards of design and sustainability.

All of the homes have ground-level court yards and large roof terraces while most also have balconies and private car ports/garages for parking. The 1.3acre brownfield scheme was developed in two phases, with the 13 homes on the northern side of the development being the first ready for occupation.

Millward provided both civil and structural services, including foundation and steelwork design from inception of the scheme and assisted with the conceptual designs and feasibility in order to move the project forward. Additional services included geotechnical works, flood risk assessments, drainage design and highway design.

Added Value

As sustainable, low energy homes, the Green Street houses have levels of insulation and air tightness which far exceed the standards which new British homes are obliged to have. Having worked on 3 phases of the project, we developed a great understanding of the project which enabled us to:

  • Deliver the sustainable design solutions which the units required
  • Utilise the modern methods of construction involved in such a design-led project
  • Work to the swift programme to keep up with sales demand (the entire development sold off-plan).
