PROJECT TO BUILD A FOUR-STOREY CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER OFFICE BUILDING IN ILFORD

The client, Plaut International Ltd, owns and occupies a single-storey office on this site and is a supplier of timber and timber products to manufacturers and merchants in the UK. The brief was to design a suitable Head office building to replace the current building.

Having run through a number of possible designs, pre-application consultations were undertaken with the local planning authority and planning consent was obtained for a building of similar appearance to that currently proposed. However, it has proved impossible to reach an accommodation with the owner of the neighbouring building over a right of light issue. Therefore, a revised design that avoids the issue has been undertaken and has now been granted planning consent.
