Lewis & Hickey were commissioned by Lace Market Properties to provide a detailed delivery package for a prestigious residential development in an up-and-coming area of Nottingham, comprising 128 self-contained luxury apartments, with commercial and leisure facilities to the ground floor and car parking on 2 levels. The overall complexity of the original design has required an enormous amount of architectural & technical input, and the success on site is testimony to the quality of the Design Team.
Construction of particular note is the use of off-site manufactured timber wall panels - similar to SIP panels, which are then glazed & clad on site - quickening up the build process on site. This also benefits the sustainability credentials of the building. Due to the open plan ethos of Lace Market Properties the scheme uses enhanced fire detection and a sprinkler system to satisfy building regulations with regards to fire safety, it also allows for longer escape distances.
