Designing the Homes of The Future


Jaspal Singh and Alex Hall



Innovaré Systems Ltd, Coventry

Jas and Alex joined Cadcoe’s Apprenticeship Programme in September 2017, initially completing the fast-track course in 2D and 3D computer aided design. As with the outcome for all apprentices who follow this intensive training, they were able to join their workplace, with the ability to get stuck into projects from day one.


The Project

Little Kelham named as one of the ‘Best Places to Live in the UK’ guide in the Sunday Times, is an award winning development of 241 low carbon family homes. The developers Citu along with Innovaré are passionate about creating forward thinking design, low energy-high performance, digitally enabled dwellings with a community feel, within Sheffield’s city centre. Working as part of a team, Jas and Alex, were both involved in this offsite construction project which required them to be innovative, flexible and efficient, with the ability to follow instructions to the finest detail, to ensure the clients requirements were being met. Jas and Alex have both revised the comments received from the architect, however they each responded to different comments, in which Jas made his amendments at a later revision. Revisions and amendments are made in conjunction with the architect’s design brief and advice from the Innovare in-house technical design team and structural engineers through full collaboration of information until all are confident that the client’s requirements are going to be met whilst ensuring British Standards are complied with.
