Construction is nearing completion on this interesting residential project in Lewes, East Sussex. The development of seven dwellings replaces the original dilapidated commercial buildings.
Due to its location, on the South West bank of the River Ouse, the development required major piling work to strengthen the river wall. The scheme also incorporates extensive flood prevention measures, so that if flood defences are breached the buildings will withstand water inundation and can be quickly and simply returned to normal use, reducing cost and inconvenience for the owners. Each home enjoys private parking, riverside terrace and balconies. Three of the properties benefit from roof terraces and a sprinkler system is also fitted throughout the building.
