Royal Borough of Kensington + Chelsea
Croft provided basement design that extended out under the garden. We began on this project by providing Kensington and Chelsea Structural Basement Impact Assessment for Planning. Once helping the client through the planning process we continued through to design and construction. Following the developers request, we provided an option for the future purchasers to buy collateral Warranties
Croft developed a way to support the high loads, maximise space by underpinning the garden walls and also keep neighbours happy by keeping garden walls in place.
Many other engineers insist on underpinning and placing a box internally. This would lose considerable space and a reduced sale price. By employing Croft Structural + Civil the client was able to maximises the area available and increase the resale of the property. To the house above ground the building was renovated with the ground floor being opened up to allow amazing views into the garden.
