Build comprises three phases, including all associated Enabling Works and Infrastructure Works.
Three concrete framed apartment blocks have racecourse views and the development is within the Racecourse site and is a joint venture with Newbury Racecourse being developed over a 10 year period.
Given the nature of the project, there were a number of constraints which were taken into the consideration in the design & planning phase:
Works in close proximity to the operational Racecourse
No working on Race days and management of activities around the Racecourse Racing days and events
Environmental protection and Arboricultural Protection
Environmental and ecological issues
New road bridge over operational railway
Highways works and Utilities diversions
Limited space & multi-storey: required Tower Crane for building process
Elevated levels of ground gases
