DarntonB3 was appointed through a framework agreement to provide architecture services for the delivery of the project at Pocklington from inception through to completion (RIBA stages 0-6).
The site was located directly in the centre of the market town of Pocklington and close to all amenities.
Our team worked closely with McCarthy and Stone to evaluate the mix for the project of 14 1-bed apartments and 20 2-bed apartments, resulting in a 34 unit scheme. We developed initial feasibility studies, attended consultation events and dealt with planning and construction issue drawings.
Extensive liaison with the local planning authority together with organising the public consultation event.
The scheme developed utilising the local vernacular materials and retained a sympathetic massing with the majority of the development at 2 storey, with 3 storey features with layouts to support a modern living style. Context with the surrounding properties was carefully evaluated and maintained with a good balance of street presence, landscape and parking.
Balconies were incorporated where possible overlooking a central private garden area. Great care was taken to ensure the units and site was fully accessible.
Through the construction period close liaison was carried out with the onsite team to ensure the project was fully delivered to all building regulation and design criteria. DarntonB3 also assisted with material to support the marketing and sales process.
