Project Description

A compact severed garden plot for a 3/4 bedroom detached dwelling house. ED&B appointed MBA Consulting Engineers to assist with the ground investigation works.

Owing to a very high water table and the presence of a local stream, a driven case pile solution was adopted together with reinforced ground beams for the foundations.

The remainder of the construction was traditional insulated rendered and load bearing blockwork masonry with a trussed and interlocking tiled roof.

This quality family home called for a high level of finish with granite worktops and underfloor heating on the ground floor. Sanitary ware was supplied by Mayflower Bathrooms. The site will be comprehensively landscaped on completion.
