The Bungalow Hotel New housing development, Sandsend

Client: Mulgrave Estates

2009 saw the demolition of the Bungalow Hotel, a black & white landmark set on the

hillside at Sandsend. The owners, Mulgrave Estate, proposed to replace the hotel with a development of traditional styled homes built using a very modern technique of Insulated Concrete Formwork. The site is steeply sloping and the Estate required Maltech to design and contract manage an upgrade to the approach road from Lythe Bank, before any other works could commence.

To deal with the level issues posed by the site, Maltech also devised a number of retention solutions including use of timber clad sheet piling, stone filled gabions and timber railway sleepers.
