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.

Stowford Mill

In January 2014, Expedite was commissioned to offer Project Management services for Stowford Mill Estates. It has already successfully launched a public consultation on the £20m heritage restoration, which aims to transform the former mill into a beautiful eclectic mixed use development.

Expedite will lead on the client’s vision to transform this eight-acre site, which sits in a beautiful location in the Erme Valley and is framed by Dartmoor National Park and Brunel’s Great Western Railway, into a beautiful, eclectic, mixed-use development.

Sampsons Farms Country Hotel

In March 2014, Expedite secured the project management commission on Sampson’s Farm, Preston, Newton Abbot.

The planned development includes the redevelopment of this idyllic farm into a charming and graceful holiday let destination located in the grounds of the renowned Sampsons Farm Country Hotel. Expedite secured the appointment to lead the development from initial concepts.

Ocean Crescent project riding a wave of success

Having been appointed to provide Project Management Services for the refurbishment of Ocean Crescent, a 122-apartment development at the heart of Plymouth, Expedite is delighted with the progress of this landmark building to date.

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.

New Ipswich medical centre takes shape

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.
