We have recently completed the refurbishment of the former Lloyds Bank Tower Block located on the Causeway, Durrington for our Client Rocco Homes.

The original main reinforced concrete frame was not altered significantly as the large concrete columns were widely spaced for office use. The new apartments were designed to fit around these. The structure was altered to accommodate new lift shafts and a new floor level was added to the top floor in lightweight construction. At ground floor level the original undercroft parking areas and cantilevered overhangs were infilled to create an additional apartment area and a glazed entrance lobby.

The external works was limited with a minimal number of new parking bays added and steps and ramps up to the floor level. The Foul Water and Surface Water drainage design required new pipe runs to be added to suit the apartment layouts above and external works and connected into existing sewers.
