A commendation for Sandbanks

Sandbanks- Victoria Avenue, St. Helier

Situated in a prominent seafront location on Victoria Avenue, St. Helier, Sandbanks is a brand new residential development from Style Homes, a part of the Style Group.  

Sandbanks comprises three luxury apartments – ground floor, first floor and penthouse – with an attached garage.

AC Mauger Special Projects was the main contractor on Sandbanks, whilst Riva Architects provided all architectural services on the project.

Sandbanks was built on the site of an existing house which was demolished prior to any construction work taking place. The project required the design team to work closely with Riva Architects and AC Mauger Special Projects in order to achieve the many fantastic elements of the scheme, including the stunning glazed work.

The development was constructed using a combination of steel frame, RC beams, concrete floors, and blockwork construction with an insulated render finish on the outside. Sandbanks has a single layer membrane flat roof, with double glazed windows.

The development includes various aluminium fenestration and glazing products from the Sapa system suite – provided by Style Windows, also a part of the Style Group. Features include large bi-folding doors with hidden threshold, casement windows and an electronic access entrance door.

All of the apartments are high-end, with fantastic kitchens and sanitary ware and excellent finishes.

A striking feature of Sandbanks is the glazed curved central staircase which provides access to all three apartments. A lift was also installed into the development during construction, to provide additional access.

Work to complete the project included a small amount of landscaping, which tied the development into its surroundings.

AC Mauger Special Projects Managing Director, Steve Romeril, said:

“We encountered a couple of challenges on Sandbanks, namely working in a confined space and maintaining access to adjoining properties, but work ran very smoothly on the project and it was a great development to be a part of.”

Sandbanks received a commendation at the Jersey Architecture Design Awards 2013 for Best Large-scale Development.

Discussing the commendation, Steve said:

“Being associated with projects such as Sandbanks which received a commendation is very important to us. Awards and commendations give us a great satisfaction, knowing that we have achieved something with such a high standard.”

With an enviable reputation, the Style Group – which comprises six divisions – has built up a strong relationship with its clients. The group completes work in a variety of sectors, from construction, house building, shopfitting and the installation of window and curtain walling systems, through to office planning and furniture.
