ARNI were elated to handover the conversion of a former bank to a 7x ensuite bedroom House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) and self-contained shop unit after a long journey for client, Steve Evans.
Steve was born blind and chose to purchase the former bank because of its simple layout. Steve came into difficulties when he appointed a non-qualified Architect to prepare plans that included moving 1m thick reinforced concrete walls and adding windows to walls below ground!
Steve appointed ARNI to reconfigure the layout, reapply for planning permission, tender the building works to contractors and oversee the construction phase.
The project was featured on BBC Homes Under The Hammer and will be aired again 10am Thursday 14 September on BBC1.
