A complicated shaped extension with a variety of external finishes, brickwork, sweet chestnut cladding and coloured rendering with composite windows under a zinc roof provide several coordination issues, whilst the reinforced beam foundations on CFA piles adjacent to a water course is a logistical challenge.
