Residential Development and New Sports Club at Sale Cricket Club

Our client was appointed by Sale Cricket Club to coordinate the detailed design and construction of 14, 5 bed luxury semi-detached houses and a new 2 storey community club house and pavilion on the existing site of their clubhouse and associated unutilised land. The existing tennis facilities will also be overhauled and modernised with a new enclosure as part of these works.

The initial scheme was developed by another architectural consultant with the support of Sport England, the England & Wales Cricket Board and the Lawn Tennis Association. We were appointed to perform a design review as well as the production of a construction drawing pack to assist with the delivery of this project on a design and build basis for Brierstone.

As part of our delivery we have produced a detailed BIM model for the full site which we have been able to offer to Brierstone to utilise in a number of ways to drive up the quality and accuracy of the design and delivery. This includes:

  • Assisting with scheduling building materials as well as the general items to eliminate errors when ordering materials
  • Production of CGI images to generate interest and off-plan sales at an earlier stage
  • Elimination of consistency errors on site when changes are made
  • Clash detection between specialist consultants who we have coordinated with our models
  • Construction design cost engineering and simplification through walking the virtual model in design team meetings in real time.
