This design and build project involved the conversion and extension of an existing retail unit into 11 luxury apartments with undercroft parking, in central Chester.
The Warehouse building has had a number of different past uses, including a garage, a snooker hall and lastly a Lazer Quest. The new development features roof gardens with views of the River Dee.
The current building has a new structural steel frame fixed to the current concrete roof slab, which forms a new floor. The roof terrace garden has been constructed on top of the new steel frame.
As the scheme is located within the busy city centre, the site had minimal room for storage of materials and access. The site location is also adjacent to numerous ancient and listed buildings, including the Roman Amphitheatre and a row of 16th Century almshouses. The site is also adjacent to the last remaining classic Victorian corner street pub within the City Walls of Chester.
