Cambria Consulting are appointed Civil and Structural engineers for the residential developments at Golden Mede, Waddesdon in Buckinghamshire which delivers 75 high quality bespoke units of stunning architectural design.

The project was conceived by Lord Rothschild and The Rothschild Foundation and aspires to make a step change in the architectural language of British housing. Following an international architectural competition C.F Moller architects were appointed and through the design process created a scheme heavily influences by acclaimed housing in North Copenhagen that utilizes long sloping split roofs and other key Scandinavian design features.

The site delivers a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments, and two, three and four bedroom houses arranged as meandering terraces that form a ‘crescent’ surrounding the communal landscape space.

The construction of these two/three storey units is of traditional build with timber cut roofs, engineered joists and are timber brick work clad. Additional structural steelwork has also been utilized in the design to achieve the unique architectural features. The foundations are of traditional pad and trench-fill footings at various depths to suit the topography and ground conditions.
