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.
The new owners of Stowford Mill invite you to attend a community consultation event to be held at the Watermark on Friday June 6th between 2.00pm – 8:00pm.
You will be able to view historic photographs of the site and see how it looks today. The owners will present some of the initial ideas for the site and show how they meet the requirements of the Planning Brief prepared by the SHDC.
We welcome your ideas and suggestions so please come along.

Currently undergoing a £1million revamp following a buy-out by luxury property developer Burrington Estates, Ocean Crescent is receiving a cosmetic upgrade to the exterior, plus a complete refresh and modernisation of the interior communal areas and 104 of the 122 apartments. This includes four luxurious duplex penthouses, which have city and coastal views.
Expedite is very pleased with progress to date and has been impressed by the overwhelming interest and appetite for the apartments following the official launch in May, with the developers having to release apartments ahead of their scheduled released date in order to keep up with demand.

In May 2014, Expedite was delighted to take on the contract to act as the Employer’s Agent for an innovative new apartment building in the heart of Cardiff Bay by Loosemore Home, a multiple award-winning developer.
Aimed at those looking to take their first steps on the property ladder, Dixie comprises a range of 43, one- and two-bedroom apartments that are contemporary yet with architectural design that compassionately reflects the history of the conservation area and surrounding buildings. This is a funky development showcasing homes that are compact and full of clever details and contemporary fittings.

Following Expedite’s appointment as Employer’s Agent on the Two Rivers Medical Centre in Ipswich in May 2014, the project is taking shape.
Developed by Apollo, which finances and develops purpose-designed primary care premises, the new state-of-the-art medical facility takes the place of West Villa, a former Hostel that was vacated by Ipswich Borough Council in early June. It will serve approximately 25,000 local residents and provide a mix of accommodation, including consultation and treatment suites, a minor operations suite and GP training facilities.
Apollo has now entered into legal agreements with the Local Authority to secure land for the development and, in conjunction with Ipswich-based KLH Architects, have also lodged a planning application for the development. It is anticipated that a decision will be made by the Local Authority Planning Department in September.
Apollo will invest over £6m in the delivery of the new facility and it is anticipated that once planning consent is obtained for the development proposals, construction will commence in early 2015 with completion expected in spring 2016.
Dr Jonathan Knight, lead GP for the two practices for the project, said: “We are excited about the prospect of being able to serve our patients from better accommodation. In particular we will have a building that allows full accessibility, properly equipped treatment and consulting rooms, the ability to provide a wider range of medical services and space to provide health education and training.”
Expedite’s appointment stems from a strong a track record of the delivery of 5 other Medial Centres by Director Andrew Woods.
