McCarthy & Stone
Construction Drawings, Technical Support
This scheme at Broadstone, to deliver the technical design package for a previously consented scheme, was one of our first commissions with McCarthy & Stone. It provided an excellent opportunity for the practice to demonstrate our in-depth knowledge of the elderly living / care sector coupled with the efficiencies expectation of a plc housebuilder. KSA quickly demonstrated that we were up to the task and now operate as one of McCarthy & Stones preferred Architects in the Southern Region.
Waterman House is a £4.2 million contemporary mixed-use scheme for McCarthy & Stone. Consisting of retail units and retirement apartments with associated communal facilities for the over 60s, located in a prominent and desirable location in Broadstone, Dorset.
KSA worked closely with the client and design team to revise an existing planning consent followed by a detailed construction package to successfully provide a new Costa café, renewed Post Office, 11 one bedroom and 25 two-bedroom apartments. Our technical team has been on hand throughout the project, offering both office based and on-site support to ensure the developer could meet their aspirations, successfully completing the scheme within budget and on time in August 2018.
As a result of our work at Broadstone and subsequent McCarthy & Stone projects, we were awarded Practice of the Year in 2018 and a commendation in 2019
