Alliance House Fratton, Hampshire
Drum Housing Association appointed W Stirland Limited to carry out the detailed design and construction of this residential development of 32 flats on the site of a former factory and public house. The project was completed ahead of programme.
Architect: MH Architects Limited
Engineer: Archibald Shaw
Client Agent: Brodie Plant Goddard
The building is of timber-frame construction and comprises 32 flats, 10 of which are in shared ownership.
During the construction period one-third of the ground floor of the building was destroyed in an arson attack. In order to limit delays and unforeseen costs our Managing Director and Construction Director met Drum HA’s Project Officer on a regular basis to plan a way forward and agree how to deal with the damage.
Throughout the rebuilding phase the senior members of the company were always available to Drum HA representatives. This ensured that the Client was kept continuously informed regarding progress on the insurance claim and the rebuilding programme.
