Following the recent drive by central governments to provide additional affordable housing, Plymouth City Council embarked on a variety of pilot self-build projects to provide fully serviced self-build plots to local people.
In order to facilitate the above, ED&B were commissioned to carry out the initial enabling works package which compromised the demolition of the existing garages and redundant gas governor building together with the widening of the existing access road and the connection of all new services to serve the individual plots.
The project called for careful co-ordination with all of the existing residents along the access road in order to minimise disruption.
