Selling well off plan – Stowford Mill, Ivybridge

Stowford Mill

Stowford Mill is undergoing a stunning transformation. The Grade II listed former paper mill in South Devon, one of the county’s oldest Mill sites, will once again become a vibrant hub at the heart of Ivybridge.

Burrington Estates’ vision for the eight-acre site involves the sensitive restoration of the old mill building, with its iconic chimney and engine house to create a dynamic, mixed-use development. Part of the skyline of Ivybridge for hundreds of years, Stowford Mill will become a rural version of Plymouth’s redeveloped Royal William Yard.

Nestled in the Erme Valley beside the river, Stowford Mill is framed by mature trees against the backdrop of an impressive railway viaduct dating back to its Victorian heyday. Ivybridge is known as the Gateway to Dartmoor, one of the country’s most stunning national parks and provides a natural playground for walking, horse riding, climbing and cycling.

This inspirational landmark development offers an intoxicating mix of history & contemporary design, nature & culture. The community taking shape will include:

  • 1 & 2 Bedroom Mill House Loft Apartments
  • 3 – 5 Bedroom Luxury New Homes
  • 1 & 2 Bedroom Later Living Apartments for over 55’s
  • Boutique hotel
  • Restaurants & bars
  • Commercial premises and retail units
  • Open spaces for everyone to enjoy

Heathcoat Fabrics, Tiverton – Proposed re-roofing of land locked warehouse

Expedite Engineering were engaged by Heathcoat fabrics to coordinate the re-roofing of one of the more difficultly located units.  With the site land locked between other active industrial units we were tasked with not only providing a valid and cost efficient design but also a design that would allow full install of main structure and all secondary cladding elements within  2 week shut down period.   The project was made complicated further by the compound and affluent mechanical plant and their extraction flues that exists within and around the area of works that can not be altered in any way during or after the frame install.  Until the short part shut down period, all works are to remain live throughout.  Expedite opted to generate internal and external point cloud surveys gathering accurate 3D information and allowing the primary structure to be built in Revit avoiding clashes and minimising all risks of an extended installation period.
