WHAT IS AIRSPACE DEVELOPMENT?

Essentially airspace development is building new accommodation on top of existing residential and commercial properties. Using ground breaking construction methods airspace homes can be manufactured almost completely off site and can be installed above the existing rooftops in just a few days. This style of development is heralded as a new era in housebuilding and Sussex Airspace Developments is at the forefront of this ever growing industry.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

After an initial feasibility study to ensure the airspace development is possible, our design and planning team work with the building owners and occupiers to create plans for the new accommodation that everybody is happy with. We’ll then oversee the entire planning application and secure approval. Our precision engineered modular apartments are factory built to up to 90% completion and can be installed on site over the space of a few days. Once the new apartments are completed we take care of all the sales and after-sales servicing.
