Brooklyn House, Poole, Dorset

Brooklyn House is a development of 11 luxury apartments situated in Bingham Avenue, a prestigious location in Poole, Dorset.

A single house, originally built 15 years previously, was demolished to make way for this development on a sloping site.  Instructions came from Towncourt Homes, a company well known for building high quality residential properties.  This was the fifth Towncourt Homes development that Acheson had been involved in.

The external walls were constructed using Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF), a combination of two common building materials - expanded polystyrene and concrete, which provides a quick, cost effective and practical building system offering huge advantages in energy saving, thermal and acoustic performance.  ICF has been used in the construction industry for many years mainly in self-build markets, particularly in USA and Canada, and Acheson was one of the first main contractors to take advantage of this modern method of construction in the UK.

The building is on 4 floors with a spacious penthouse and subterranean car park.  Various challenges were addressed due to the topography of the site and the use of different construction materials.
