Type: Residential (office conversion): 36 dwellings
Brief: Design and construction information
BE1 developed design and construction information for the conversion of an existing office building for residential use in Harpenden.
The scheme involves the retention of the existing building structure and refurbishment of the existing building fabric, with a new build roof. The later introduction of the roof extension was part of a staged development programme and required a considered approach with regards to fire strategy and coordination of services.
The building, which was completed in early 2019, now provides 24 dwellings in the existing building and a further 12 in the roof extension.
