We were appointed in July 2009 on a Design and Build basis to provide civil and structural engineering services on the new two storey steel framed doctors’ surgery and small procedures building.

 

The project achieved a BREEAM standard of Very Good and SuDS and recycled water systems were incorporated. Our local knowledge of the existing ground conditions contributed to a significant saving by challenging the site investigation recommendations that proposed a piled solution. Instead, soil improvement was adopted as the final solution with shallow foundations.

 

The service integration within the structural steel frame was a particular challenge on this scheme due to restricted height ceiling zones. We lead the early co-ordination of services and structure to avoid potential clashes on site by incorporating service routes within the structure.
