Updates on construction

Cladding and windows being installed in the two student blocks on Brunel Road

Safety netting down and some scaffolding on the CO OP bank building in Stanhope Rd but not much else seems to have happened

Scaffold and netting up on the derelict Norreys building in Queens St ready for its demolition and removal for building of the premier Inn on that site.

Any news about demolition on the Colt building in New Lane Havant? I see minor work like gas was shut off a few weeks ago and few things inside but any news otherwise?

It would be great to see long reach demolition excuvators in action

Link to The News revealing a new tower in Gosport. Here's some more images as I worked on and designed the exterior. Feel free to post ANY feedback, both positive and negative.

Sorry about the large images I still cant work out how to reduce the size.

Gosport development

Not a bad looking building, I dont really like the green cladding reminds me of the eyesore unite building.

The balconies are nice, but the windows lack and detailing and seem quite small.


Obviously a great location, however I cant see the point of the lower part of the block to the rear as there will be no views at all.

I saw a similar block in london a while ago but the building was turned 180 degrees with the lower smaller parts of the building at the front to create a tiered building with river views. The developer did it this way as it generated more income on the sales values of the units.

You have some fair points, fisrtly on the windows, but this was due to a previous application. They're not as small as they look just large facades, I had thought about some more full height windows but this was the agreed approach.

The rear apartments is an unfortunate issue too. This is due to the plot though. It faces East to West and is narrow. It wasn't possible to arrange it the other way. But I agree it's a bit of a shame. There's only around 9 flats without sea views though.

As for the green cladding, don't worry it wont be the same as Greetham Street. It's a copper like panel rather than a solid colour. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to create a copper like material in a render software.

Thanks for the feedback and this was in no way defensive just a response I appreciate your comments.

Sounds good

I like the sound of the copper panels, its a great material that has a multi tonal finish that changes depending on the amount of light/time of day, so it sounds like they will be a great feature.

Its a shame about the windows but I know what council planning officers are like.

Good luck with the application
