Former BT Tower, Bedford

An urban site of just over 1 hectare comprising open car park, a 13 storey tower block and an adjacent 4 storey suite of offices.

Our client sought to convert the tower block from offices to flats, instructing us to provide a detailed topographic survey of the site and its surrounds together with floor plans and elevations of the tower block from basement level to roof top plant room.

The detailed survey included proving the sewer system connections, surveying the adjacent roads and details of the overlooking properties. Our client has subsequently instructed us to carry out a number of additional surveys in the area including the as built details of this development together with an adjacent project site.

We also acted as planning consultants to the clients, coordinating the preparation and submission of a detailed planning application for change of use of the building, including the supporting technical assessments. Planning permission was successfully secured and the building has since been fully converted.
