Scope: 152 new houses and apartments for Redrow (SW)
Services Provided: Structural design including concrete, masonry, pre-cast concrete and timber-trussed roofs.
New flats, starter and 4-5 bedroom homes for Redrow
The Lawrence Green development on the site of the former Combination Club in Stoke Gifford, Bristol, is Phase 2 of a multi-phase scheme in which we are proud to be working with Redrow (SW) Ltd, providing the sub- and partial superstructure design for 152 new homes, some with standalone garages and some with garages built at ground level under the dwelling. We also provided structural engineering consultant designs for the site’s garden retaining walls, culvert headwalls and the main highway’s special access surface water culverts.
Described by Redrow as ‘setting a new benchmark in high quality living’, this second part of the development extends into Lawrence Green, site of the old Dings rugby club. For this new phase, we have recently completed our tender designs for some 30 houses and some 12 apartments to be built in two 2-storey apartment blocks of the 152 total number, with the rest underway. The new homes will be constructed using loadbearing masonry walls, suspended pre-cast concrete beam and block ground floors, timber and precast concrete plank first and second floors and timber trussed rafter roofs.
Projected completion: May 2019
