Residential

Specialist engineering for Residential projects

With extensive experience in delivering residential projects for both private and public sector clients, we can help you to develop your sites as economically as possible.

We have delivered high and low rise residential developments including those for open market private sale for the national housebuilders as well as for smaller local developers, social housing associations, student accommodation units and residential care homes.

To deliver the most cost effective build solution on your project, we will typically design and detail several alternative structural options, reviewing traditional construction materials, modern methods of construction and various hybrid solutions so that you can establish the best option in terms of overall cost and construction period.

Many residential projects involve sites which are affected by some form of abnormal works, which can pose significant risks to your project. We will help establish what these risks are and how best to either avoid them or minimise their impact on your project finances.

We have an excellent track record of identifying these risks at the earliest possible stage and we encourage our involvement as early as possible, preferably before site purchase.

The earlier we are brought on board the more time we have to design out the problem and mitigate your risks.

Ways we can help include:

  • Avoiding the need for the costly removal of contaminated ground to a licensed tip.
  • Optimising site levels to minimise material import and export, including phased construction.
  • Adopting innovative foundation solutions on problem sites with poor ground or history of mining, etc.
  • Designing surface water SUDS techniques to avoid costlier options for dealing with the surface water flows discharging from the site.
  • Avoiding the need for costly mains services diversions where feasible.
  • Delivering innovative flood prevention solutions to allow problem sites to be developed.
  • Providing efficient access and circulation solutions to minimise land take.

By identifying all the engineering-related potential risks as possible in the process, we can help you avoid them altogether or to at least minimise their impact on your project.
