Work has started on our £11m scheme to construct 15 townhouses along with  an access road in Chantry Vew Road, Guildford.   The 3 storey townhouses will have roof top gardens and either double garages  or external car parking.  Each unit  comprises of four bedrooms, with an en-suite and bathrooms, an open plan living  area with dining space, a kitchen and lounge area.  There is a cinema / games rooms, utility  room, wine cellar and plant room, along with balconies on each house.

The project is taking place in an old  quarry in Guildford which was used as a shooting practice range during the  First World War.  Work is currently  underway to stabilise the side of the quarry through the use of vertical  technologies.  Retaining walls will be  constructed behind each house following the stabilisation works. Trees are  being protected and an old kiln restored.

Excavation works are underway to  provide an access road, along with the construction of a retaining wall.  The excavation works will also enable a water  management solution using a Polystem Modular Cell System to be installed to  ensure surface water runs away to avoid flooding in the future.

All work is being carried out for  Latchmere Properties, a leading developer of bespoke homes in Surrey.
