A private house on a brown field site between existing domestic properties presented us with some unique buildability issues. Due to access limitations, all elements had to be brought through a narrow 2.4m wide access from the main road.
The selected structural scheme maximised the width of the site by tying in the existing boundary’s without disturbing their Victorian footings. The structure was then constructed using two steel frames for stability and then simple loadbearing walls. The large floor spans were achieved by using lightweight timber ’I’ joists which could be handballed onto the site.
