Having acquired land in Hafod Road, one of the most prestigious addresses in Hereford, IE Developments commissioned ONE Creative environments (ONE) to initially obtain planning consent and develop a tender pack for an upmarket development of luxury residential apartments and homes.
Having successfully fulfilled the brief, the client recommissioned ONE for the contract administration of the development, to ensure smooth delivery through the construction phase.

The brief from the outset was for a development masterplan of luxury, high specification homes in this well sought-after location.
ONE’s plan included five spacious apartments, one of which being the penthouse with spectacular views across Hereford, that boasts attractive outdoor living spaces with upper floor balconies or ground floor gardens.
Four new generously-sized luxury three and four-bedroom homes are also well positioned on the site with all properties making the best use of floor to ceiling windows to flood the interiors with natural light.
The whole development has strong environmental credentials and utilise significant sustainable build principles: low energy and efficient, air tight structures with timber frames, triple-glazed windows and both rain water harvesting and grey water systems.
The site, however, was not without its challenges. The topography and levels provided significant issues to be overcome, for example, with regards to drainage. A number of protected trees also required consideration in the site layout, however, they were made to become assets, populating gardens and lining an attractive driveway through this beautiful residential setting which is elevated and set back from the road.
The client has successfully sold off plan, prior to and during construction, with the whole development due to be completed early in 2019. Further information is available at www.iedevelopments.co.uk/current-projects
ONE’s team is experienced in producing masterplans for residential developments that maximise the benefits of the natural environment and create prestigious spaces where people want to live.
The team is adept at working within site constraints and finding creative solutions, for example, the mature protected trees required careful navigation for the overall site layout, however, now enhance the local environment.
All of the residential properties have significant sustainable build principles making this a development with strong green credentials.
