Stonegate House was a new build construction of a £12 million development of 67 luxury apartments along with 150 underground car parking spaces in the heart of the city.
The building was on Stone Street which was a former quarry in the mid to late 1800’s to supply stone for the construction of a number of mills during the industrial revolution.
Due to the ground conditions, it was necessary to install reinforced concrete piles to the site however as we were retaining 2 elevations against land that was owned by others, it was also necessary to install contiguous piling with a capping beam to the perimeter to allow us to construct the underground carpark elements of the project.
The building, whilst simple in design, was constructed as an in-situ concrete frame, clad using ashlar stone and natural pitched face stone. All the construction work was undertaken by our dedicated team, with the civils team carrying out the groundworks package and the concrete frame constructed by our steel fixers and formwork joiners.
Internally we undertook the majority of the work ourselves excluding the glazing, roof and the M&E packages.
The ground floor and penthouse apartments all had large terrace areas with views over the city and were enhanced by the large French doors which provided the feeling of loft living. On each corner of the development each apartment on every floor had full floor to ceiling glazing to both elevations along with a balcony.
Internally the buildings were fitted with timber flooring to all rooms and enhanced by the contemporary kitchen units and sanitary ware.
The building was constructed using only the finest traditional materials and as a consequence will stand the test of time in terms of quality and lifespan.
