Renovation and conversion of a redundant cart shed.
Working in partnership with the National Trust AMA converted a redundant agricultural building that was near collapse into a modern energy efficient workspace. By making the most of it’s south facing aspect and stack ventilation the office requires no heating for eight months of the year and minimal artificial lighting. The office has won an award from the CPRE and Broadland district council.
The project comprised: refurbishment of 6 units and provision of 5 new units via roof top extensions to this 19th century Shoreditch industrial building. Given variable ground conditions, poor access and close proximity to a major railway line, AMA evaluated a number of pre-fabricated and more traditional constructions to find the most economic lightweight solution for the site.
“In our work we consider AMA to be our closest partners, assisting in managing our clients expectations, managing the project team, contractors and suppliers. The practice is friendly, approachable and always available to give advice”

AMA provided pre-and post- contract support to the project manager on this time critical project – the gas had to be produced and signed off by a key date to qualify for a government grant. The project challenges included a contractual framework which meant that the building works were the smaller part of the overall project brief – the main part of the project was significant product delivery (the incorporation of a supplier’s process plant into the building) and the building contactor required handover of the building in sections in order to meet deadlines.
