Acis Group Ltd
The Riseholme Road project consisted of the construction of the 57 houses, 9 apartments and 8 bungalows and incorporated timber frame structures, air source heat pumps, solar and photovoltaic panels and mechanical heat recovery ventilation. The 74 dwellings were intended for rent, intermediate rent and shared ownership and were constructed to Code Level 3, with one house upgraded to Code 4 and one to Code 5.
Working closely with our partnered Client, Acis Housing Group Ltd, Lindum Construction played a key part in identifying the site's potential for development. The site had been used for housing in the sixties which had recently been demolished and the re-development presented an array of obstacles to which we were able to provide solutions using our in-house design expertise and specialist teams. One such challenge was extensive ground contamination including hydrocarbons, ground gases, oil etc. The effects were sampled and analysed extensively using our preferred design partners and a strategy developed to remediate the site whilst minimising costs.
