Carter-Zub appointed for - new build apartment block, social housing and retail development!

We are delighted to be working with a developer (Arch Property Developments) providing our architectural design service for a site in Blackpool. The client has recently purchased a plot of land which had approval for a new build 36 apartment development. This application has expired. We have now been appointed providing the following services for a new development comprising of a minimum 12 apartments/mews houses, possible commercial retail units and social housing.
