Norbrit Apartments, Penmaenmawr
Ravenscroft purchased an old villa located in the Conservation area of Penmaenmawr, and achieved planning permission to build 6 houses and 12 apartments.
We split the scheme and constructed the houses first (see Norbrit houses)
We managed to sell the land and enter into a design and build contract with North Wales Housing to construct the 12 apartments for them.
The scheme was the first Code Level 3 site in the Conwy area and we had to comply the CFSH (code for sustainable homes). All the apartments had some renewables installed in order for us to achieve the certificate.
The build programme was 12 months and we finished on time and to a very high standard, working within the constraints of the Conservation Officer, CFSH and Lifetime Homes.
We were nominated for a LABC Excellence award which we duly on and were presented with the award in September 2011
