Picked Again - Ashfield Group

Ashfield Group are once again picked to deliver two high quality detached new build homes in Cowthorpe, just outside Wetherby.

We are delighted to announce that Ashfield Group has been chosen as the preferred contractor to deliver two exclusively designed and detached homes in Cowthorpe.

Ashfield were engaged post planning stage to assist on a consulting basis to take the projects from planning through to construction level design, contract and onto site.

Through our growing network of construction professionals, Ashfield were able to refer a funding expert that successfully sourced the construction finance on behalf of the Employer.

Consulting with the Employer we were able to understand his brief and guide him down a design path that would maximise the project brief against his budget. We started with budget costing the planning consented development, then we assembled a designed team that consisted of AMS Planning, Architecture and Development Consultants, Topping Engineers and Glenrate Ltd who is representing the client as Employer Agent.

Working with the design team and using value engineering techniques that we have learned over many successfully delivered projects, we were able to negotiate a contract with the Employer in line with his very specific requirements, to budget and that has resulted in a very high spec and bespoke designed development.

AMS Planning’s design for the properties will see them constructed of natural course stone, natural slate roof tiles and feature a range of items designed to enhance the properties green credentials including mechanical ventilation heat recovery systems, ground and air source heat pumps and customised aluminium windows.

The houses are situated in Cowthorpe, a village located in the Harrogate district of North Yorkshire.  Cowthorpe was the home of an enormous tree, The Cowthorpe Oak with a circumference of 60 feet.  Unfortunately, by the early 19th century the tree was decaying and died, however Cowthorpe will now have a new fixture to be proud of, two beautiful new stone houses.

Due for completion in late 2022.
