Cambria Consulting are the appointed engineers responsible for the design and specification for the sub and superstructure for this BIM level 2 project in Ceredigion. The superstructure consists of a braced steel frame incorporating a movement joint. A first floor in two of the wings is constructed from precast concrete hollow-core slabs. The foundations are a combination of reinforced concrete pads and strip footings, while the ground floor slab is generally ground bearing, but changes to a suspended slab in areas of fill.

The earthworks design for this steeply sloping site included a detailed specification for the works. The site was modelled in Civil 3D in order to balance the cut and fill operation. The drainage strategy included soakaways in fractured mudstone which were arranged and optimised to minimise excavation. No positive  off-site surface water drainage was required.
