This site lies at the settlement edge of Billericay and was formerly a donkey field in private ownership. The site slopes very gently to the north west which led to the SuDS solution being a combination of rain gardens within the development and a pond in the north easter open space.
The dimensions of the site, as well as the grain of the existing settlement, led to a grid pattern arrangement. The roads are mostly shared surface with textured strips at junctions to encourage slow speeds. The house designs are based traditional Essex architecture with steep pitches, a range of materials including soft pastel coloured render, white weatherboarding and soft red brick. Car ports are designed as traditional cart lodges and are set back from the building line. A detailed analysis of the surrounding area was undertaken and illustrated in the Design and Access Statement.
The revit modelled house designs were useful for the CGI designer, who was able to import the files directly into his software, saving a great deal of time and ensuring 100% accuracy.
