Bequest Apartments, South Croydon

  • Location

    Purley, South Croydon

Bequest Apartments is a two-storey apartment block development in South Croydon, comprised of six 1-bed, 2-bed and 3-bed flats with associated parking, balconies and landscaping. It was the developer’s first timber frame development.

The quality, speed of construction and insulation values were the key areas that BBM Property Group Director, David Best, considered when weighing up the benefits of timber frame. He took the approach of looking at each of these from the homeowners perspective. Timber frame developments achieve a better thermal performance, which pays dividends for homeowners.

Being their first experience in timber frame construction, with no existing supplier relationships, BBM were looking for a timber frame company that could guide them through the entire process. It was our attention to detail and service that won us the project and sparked the beginnings of a long-term relationship.

The speed of construction whilst maintaining a high quality build supported the delivery plans of the project. The structure was erected in a matter of weeks.  As the industry has evolved and the demand for housing surges, there is an increased pressure to deliver high quality, good value housing quickly. We were particularly impressed by the the service we received from Paramount, as they went over and above in all areas of the process, which goes a long way with us. We would most definitely go timber frame on every given opportunity.
