Arcus were appointed as Lead Consultant and Architect to refurbish 3 high rise blocks in Nottingham City Centre. The works involved external wall insulation, balcony remodelling and internal upgrades to all 270 residential flats and communal areas. The scheme also includes a new heating system which aims to reduce residents’ energy costs by an average of 50%.
Throughout the design stages Arcus worked closely with the Client, tenant liaison officers, residents and community representatives. Once the initial designs were developed, we devised a series of consultation opportunities to present the options to residents, allowing them to feedback into the design process. Due to the works being carried out whilst the buildings were occupied, all three blocks were provided with a single fully furnished flat to be used by residents during the day whilst works were being carried out to their flat’s windows and heating.
