Working alongside GS8 Developments, we submitted planning to Basildon Council for a 245 unit MMC module scheme at Great Oaks as part of the Basildon Masterplan. The building addresses four different street conditions and the proposal focused on enhancing the ground floor level as well as adding new green spaces for local residents.
Designed around a large central courtyard with a south facing open aspect, the ground floor level also provides commercial and community spaces and there’s 45 car parking spaces included too.
Above ground level a slab is formed to support the courtyard and MODE modular apartment units, which are stacked so that servicing is simple and accessible. The four cores are designed as modular components with lift cores giving structural stability and the choice of a modular system gives a much shorter construction time alongside aligning with client aspirations of zero construction waste and the apartments fully finished when delivered to site.
