This new development comprises of a row of four-storey terraced houses laid out to suit the Kingston Road corner plot.
The terrace comprises of 9 units, each with 4 bedrooms and a roof terrace. The foundations are reinforced concrete ground beams on RC piles. Great care was needed in planning the foundation and drainage works in order to avoid the trunk sewer running in close proximity to the front of the site. The superstructure comprises of engineering joists, timber floors and roof supported by steel beams bearing onto loadbearing blockwork party walls.
The concrete blockwork party walls are also used to stabilise the building in one direction, whereas steel portal frames provide adequate level of stiffness in the other direction.
