The site for Portland Road was a stalled development, originally commenced by a private house builder with the properties intended for open market sale . The building had been constructed to ground floor window level but stood vacant for 5 years after the original developer lost their financing.

With the help of grant funding of £360,000, we worked with Coda Studios Ltd and DJ Atkinson Construction Ltd to complete the building to offer for affordable rent.

The scheme incorporates a 14kw solar panel array located on the roof, in order to comply with the planning authorities requirement that 10% of the energy  used on site must be generated from renewable technologies.
