Getting started on Lytham eco offices

Work has started on the second phase of a commercial development in Lytham. Melton Grove Works is a development of high quality office and studio space. The second phase is adjacent to the original ‘sawmill’ for which Clement Dickens previously carried out extensive refurbishment works on behalf of architects Firth Associates. This second phase of the project, set for completion early 2013, will see the construction of a new build 4500 sq ft unit. With thermally efficient walls achieving u value of 0.14 and a sustainable heating and cooling system, the eco-designed building promises reduced energy bills for occupiers.

Joel Firth designed and commissioned the project. He said: “This will be a highly efficient, super-insulated structure that integrates sustainable building materials and technical systems to make this the most environmentally conscious office development in the area.

“The appointment of Clements Dickens to this second phase of the project is down to the excellent job the team did with the refurbishment of the ‘sawmill’.

“The foundations have been dug and the build is well under way and I’m delighted that we’re even ahead of schedule which is good news, as there’s already been significant interest in the space and we’ve already signed up our first pre let.”


Classy completion for St Annes home

Home improvements are on the up across the country as many homeowners who are looking for more space, are choosing to extend and remodel rather than move. Making the most of any spare patch of land or reworking the internal space are great ways of freshening up the look of a home and making room for a growing family without the upheaval of a move.

This beautiful St Annes home has been extended at the back with the addition of two bedrooms, and an en suite bathroom. The kitchen has been given a complete makeover and will be a fresh and bright space with the addition of a lantern light in the roof.

We’re pleased with a job well done as the house looks superb, and we were delighted with the result of the client satisfaction survey which gave us 10 out of 10 in three areas, including project management and high praise for the team’s attitude and courtesy on site.

When asked how happy they were with the overall service of the team, Mr & Mrs Ian Brown answered: “10 out of 10, deserved as overall, CDS performed far in excess of our expectations.”
