Built in two phases, NR1 is a development of 6 apartment blocks along the River Wensum, in the heart of Norwich City Centre, adjacent to Norwich City Football Club’s Carrow Road Stadium.
The 6-7 storey apartment blocks have been constructed on piled foundations, with significant below ground drainage & storage tanks. The buildings are reinforced concrete frame.
Parking is provided on the ground floor, beneath the apartment blocks.
Given the location of the works, there were a number of constraints which were taken into the consideration in the design & planning phase:
Works in close proximity to the significant watercourse
Site immediately adjacent to Premiership Football Club: management of activities around the football fixture list
Multi-storey construction: enhanced Fire Management Strategy etc.
Limited space & multi-storey: required Tower Crane for building process
Close proximity to existing Phase 1 residential apartment blocks with pedestrian footpath links: security, noise, dust, vibration issues
Ground Conditions (made ground & peat), Stability Issues & shallow Groundwater
Elevated levels of ground gases
Potential for Unexploded Ordnance
