Xmas Site Progress

Our project for 2 new dwellings overlooking heathland in Wimborne is progressing well, despite the weather! The lightweight timber first floor level has been constructed over the cantilevered steel frame and will be roofed in before Christmas. At ground floor, the internal spaces are beginning to come together. Fair face masonry walls reflecting the low winter sun pick out the subtle colour hues and texture of the handmade brickwork. A large aperture over the stairwell allows a play of light against the internal spine wall and leads you into the main living space, framing the countryside views

East Street Party a great success

The team at DMWA braved the cold conditions on Small Business Saturday to participate in the East Street Party. The street was closed to traffic and visitors were treated to a selection of stalls and events hosted by East Street businesses. The day was a big success and our ‘Decorating Christmas Characters’ stall was well received by all, young and old, raising some money for the LEAF charity in the process.

Progress on site

Our project for 2 new dwellings in Cole Hill, Wimborne is taking shape on site, with steel work partially erected for one of the houses. Due to the challenging site levels, Considerable groundworks have been required to accommodate the development, which addresses the sloping site with a partially subterranean access level which becomes elevated above ground level to the rear. With the suspended ground floor slab now in place for one of the houses, we can begin to fully appreciate the distant and private views that will form a backdrop to the open plan living spaces to both dwellings. A facing
