Ascot Corner comprises 12 luxury, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartments with underground parking for 17 cars, set within private landscaped grounds. The project was completed in Summer 2014, about a year after work started on site.
The Ascot Corner project represented an opportunity for Nordic Homes to demonstrate the flexibility of its construction techniques. Unlike buildings that involve symmetrical and repeatable units, such as student accommodation or custodial institutions, luxury homes are often less regular in their design not so easy to build efficiently using modern methods of construction.
Most modular residential buildings in the U.K. are made using steel, which tends to dictate regular forms unsuited to traditional residential styles. However, Nordic Home’s use of timber engineering takes architects’ drawings as their starting point and then the company’s manufacturing experts work out how the building can be broken down into modules while maintaining its structural and architectural integrity.
The Ascot development involves a far greater use of offsite manufacturing than might be found on equivalent projects, with modules fully kitted out in terms of plumbing, electrics and decoration, which saves time and guarantees very high quality finishes. The quality of build achieved using volumetric construction simply cannot be achieved using traditional construction techniques or even smaller prefabricated panels.
Nordic Home’s volumetric timber construction techniques also mean that the outside appearance of homes can be as traditional or modern as required by the client. Aesthetically there’s no difference compared to traditional construction. The modules provide the structure of the building, but the outside envelope could be absolutely anything.
