SGi has been involved in residential projects & apartment design for over 25 years. Over the last 15 years, apartment projects have formed a major part of our work. As a result, we have developed significant knowledge, experience and expertise in the design of apartment and mixed-use projects.
In recent years, we have completed around 5000 units and are currently working as designers on several major apartment projects, with more projects pending. Our clients include Nicholson Estates, Countryside Properties, Redrow Homes, Bellway Homes & Howard Holdings, all national clients with projects throughout the UK.
With our experience we are familiar with the demands of designing for residential living, along with the effects of changing legislation, particularly acoustic requirements.
We can demonstrate that we have the ability to deliver efficient structural solutions to meet the needs of demanding apartment / mixed-use schemes. We have faced the common problems associated with apartment construction and have significant experience in the design of all forms of suitable construction.
We are frequently faced by projects with apartments above mixed-use schemes or car parks. This presents a challenge in deriving the most economic structural solution to suit both arrangements, with transferslabs presenting one of the possibilities.
