Designs Teams Goes From Strength to Strength
Our good Client Pegasus Life the specialist retirement developer, took the same successful design team from their Moor’s Nook project and set them with a new challenge to replace the existing Glashaus, a two-storey commercial with a new retirement living building, that provides 53 high quality homes.
Some of our Structural and Civil Engineering highlights included:
- Reducing the number of soakaways required by retesting percolation rates at different depths as well as in different locations. This resulted in significant savings in the costs of the ground works.
- Utilising additional ground bearing capacity by undertaking additional ground investigations. This reduced the size of the foundations by 40%.
- Introduced rainwater harvesting to serve the communal gardens.
