Social and private housing development

Challenge

We were asked by numerous housing associations across the country to look at the design of foundation solutions, building superstructures, retaining walls, boundary walls, roads, hardstanding’s and drainage.

Solution

For the many different sites we:

  • Made recommendations on the most appropriate and cost effective foundation solutions
  • Assessed site levels and prepared designs, to avoid using retaining walls and therefore minimise costs
  • Assessed, checked and coordinated the contractor designed elements
  • Designed the drainage and external works
  • Provided design drawings and calculations for approval purposes.

Benefit

These steps provided:

  • Full structural design and detailing package coordinated with other disciplines and approvals
  • The most practical and cost effective solutions.
