This mixed-use development situated at the south end of Broadway Market is comprised of 6 apartments above retail units. It incorporates an insulated render system, allowing a high performance thermal envelope to act as pitched roof, wall, window reveal and sill without a gutter or coping, although Conservation Area height requirements imposed a part flat roof. Internally, exposed blockwork, precast concrete soffits and power-floated floors were combined to meet acoustic performance without the need for plasterboard ceilings or raised timber floors. This saving permitted the introduction of underfloor heating and 5 amp lighting circuits.
