Making Good progress on the Ring Beam

Our specialist form workers have been working hard to excavate the ground for the foundation ring beam.  Overseen by a qualified archaeologist, they have been digging out the foundation and exposing the steel in the concrete pile caps, which will later be tied to steel reinforcing cages being constructed onsite.  These will later form part of a strong reinforced concrete foundation for the steel building frame.


Exposing the steel in the concrete pile caps.  The precise depth is determined by laser measures.

Digging Foundations

Now the concrete piles have set, we are carefully exposing the columns and digging the ring-beam foundation.   The piles will be cut down and tested before exposing the reinforcing bars over the coming weeks.  Formworkers will then link each pile to the reinforced ringbeam to produce a strong foundation for the building’s steel frame.




Carefully Exposing the Piles

Now that all piling has been completed and the concrete has set, we are now carefully exposing each pile in advance of testing and digging the trenches for the supporting ringbeam.   The spoil from the piling operations has been removed from site.


Planning Consent for Conisford House in Rose Lane, Norwich

August 2016

Circlet Homes are proud to announce that they have received planning permission for 26 superior apartments superbly equipped for modern living in the heart of Norwich

Leading architects have designed a residence where the contemporary city living experience is combined with modern construction techniques and traditional materials to deliver a striking and well-presented exclusively private development that will stand the test of time.


Conisford Court is situated on the important thoroughfare of Rose Lane close to the point where it becomes Farmers Avenue at King Street in Norwich.

In the middle ages “Rose Lane was within the ancient Conisford part of Norwich named for the ‘King’s ford’ over the river, built as the royal entrance to Norwich, strong and sturdy, impressive and assured, yet unobtrusive in its everyday role in serving the hard-working industrial heart of the city.” *

This historic precedent has inspired Circlet Homes to devise a selection of superb purpose built contemporary apartments designed by leading architects and equipped to impressive standards for modern city living .

Superior materials, convenience features and an uncommon attention to detail combined with spacious light & airy living spaces provide a superior standard of accommodation fitting of its place in the heart of a great City.

Circlet Featured in the EDP Property Section

From the EDP

Norwich-based Richard Aldous, Savills head of new homes in the eastern region, looks at the strong appeal of single storey living.

At first glance there may not be any obvious connection between an ultra modern urban apartment building and, say, a traditional seaside bungalow. But in a way, once you get past the difference in scale and location, you could be talking about the same thing – single storey living.

Interestingly, we have had enormous success with high rise living with the sell out at Westlegate Tower. However, it seems that there is a demand too for single storey new builds.

Layout is, after all, just one of many factors that buyers take into account when choosing where they live. Having said that, ease of movement and the practical advantages of not having to negotiate stairs on a daily basis may be relevant in either context.

However, the commercial implications for developers of building a bungalow compared to a house or flatted scheme are very different. Put simply, bungalows take up more land and this helps explain why so few have been built in recent years.

Generally they only spring up in areas where they already exist or where low rise buildings are considered visually preferable. But they are incredibly popular – for the reasons of practicality above and, if they are new build, because of the modern specification and relatively low maintenance that come with them.

This means that when developers do bring single storey schemes to the market they tend to generate a great deal of interest. I say that new bungalows are scarce, and they are – until recently I hadn’t sold one in years.

This makes it all the more unusual that we have been selling two such developments – one in Attleborough which has sold out, and one in Holt where six of the nine have been sold.

And now we are getting ready to launch Circlet Place, seven architect-designed chalet style homes in Dodds Road, Attleborough by local developer Circlet Homes. These offer the benefits of a bungalow with living and sleeping arrangements downstairs but also provide additional accommodation in the roof space.

The specification includes steel frame construction with integrated insulation panels and gas fired under floor heating to all ground floor rooms. The scheme is due to come to the market and prices are to be confirmed, but interest can be registered now by contacting us.
