Residential Refurbishment and New build Hanningfield, Essex

This project included elements of both refurbishment and new build to create a high quality residential scheme set in beautiful shared landscaped gardens and with stunning views across the nearby reservoir.

The original Edwardian mansion and associated buildings had progressively been extended, with inappropriate modern extensions, for use as a nursing home. This redevelopment retained the original elements which were still in good condition to create luxury apartments within the Mansion. Linked to this, new terraced housing was constructed, sympathetically detailed to suit the adjoining historic structure.

The main visual feature of the site was a clocktower “folly”. Unfortunately the original brickwork was in poor condition and it was therefore not possible to adapt and retain this structure within the new development. Planning constraints however, required its reconstruction detailed so as to replicate the original. Following a detailed topographic and photographic survey prior to demolition of the original, its modern successor was painstakingly constructed to take pride of place once more as the centrepiece of the project.

Development of Chandlers Wharf, Erith, Kent

Winner of The Institution of Structural Engineers’ East Anglia Branch Award for Structural Excellence.

This residential development has transformed a derelict industrial brownfield site into an attractive riverside location. Apartment blocks are concrete framed structures of up to eight storeys with parking beneath.

The local community also now benefits from improved access through the site and views across the River Thames from the new high level walkway constructed on top of the Flood Defence wall.

Existing buried ground anchors, which restrain the Flood Defence wall, imposed major engineering constraints on the design and construction of new foundations. Complex piled substructures were required to avoid damage to the anchors and maintain integrity of the flood defence.

A Technical paper describing aspects of the foundation design for this project in detail was later published in Ground Engineering magazine.
