245 Sutton Road
245 Sutton Road consists of 22no apartments of mixed sizes for private sale, all constructed using light gauge steel volumetric modules, coupled with a fabric first approach, the apartments on Sutton Road contain the following.
Using a ‘first principles’ approach, Hive broke down the spatial and performance requirements for Sutton Road for the use case scenarios and created a number of clearly defined modular MEP sub-assemblies with a larger range of interoperable components to allow rapid assembly and drive manufacturing quality.
Our rethink gave priority to QB’s requirements to maximise internal head room whilst minimising structural and service zones.
The project also required detailed studies into MEP connections that minimise in situ finishing works on-site and maintain the programme benefits created by an off-site manufactured solutions.
