Rising to the challenge
Creating a single-storey rear extension and the demolition of the existing garage on this job have had some challenges. We were initially commissioned to prepare the construction drawings and submit a building regulations application to private building control. This project is being built on a public drain, originally using a separate drainage company. Unfortunately, this approach was unsuccessful and MP Architects LLP’s Navid Hamzeheinejad was recommissioned to submit a ‘Build Over Agreement’ to Anglian Water. We proposed to replace the existing drainage pipe with clay and provide a manhole on the side of the extension for access and maintenance. Anglian Water accepted the new suggestion and has approved our application resulting in substantial cost savings for our client and the project is moving forward again.
