To get the project within budget, we reviewed the engineering design to change a large part of the structural steelwork to timber along with deleting some windows and non-essential items. The front floor is changed to timber frame with burnished concrete slab for the lower level, providing some thermal mass. A builder is appointed and we’re on track to start construction in May!!
