McAdam has successfully delivered over 500 new Social Housing dwellings across Northern Ireland for Apex Housing Association. This successful partnership has been underpinned by our continuous involvement on their Consultants Housing Framework since 2011. Our in-house service from inception to completion includes Lead Designer Role (Architect), Project Management, Contract Administration and Principal Designer. We also manage and co-ordinate Civil / Structural Engineering; Mechanical & Electrical Engineering and Landscape Architecture to provide a “one stop shop” multi-disciplinary service with single point responsibility provided by the McAdam PM.
The dwellings are designed to the highest sustainable standards which includes BRE Code for Sustainable Homes; the latest Life-Time Homes Standards and PSNI Secured by Design Standards. In collaboration with Apex Project Officers, we ensure that all our housing projects provide an adaptable, safe, and secure living environment.
The size, scale and range of housing projects vary, but all have been delivered in accordance with Apex's quality standards which align with the DFC DPG Design Guidance. House types include two & three storey dwellings; Duplex & Apartment units; Older Persons Category 1 & 2 dwellings and Bespoke designed Complex Needs Units.
