Several of Wintech’s current projects are PD schemes including former offices converted for residential use in the form of Vantage Point. More recently, Leon House is another office-to-residential high-rise located in Croydon where Wintech are advising on the facade’s requirements for the conversion.
Centre Point is another example; a sixties tower block now accommodating 82 luxury flats.
Permitted Development Rights allow for new homes to be created more quickly.
