A new build development comprising 3 flats over two floors forming a multi occupancy dwelling. The project required a basement to be formed on a tight site. The typical construction method is to form a piled box and then a concrete box inside.
Innovative construction sequence
This technique would have reduced the size of the flats and reduced the development from 3 flats to 2 flats. Croft constructed the basement by segmental forming walls 1m deep around the building. Once the first ring was cast the next section was excavated. The basement was built top down. The upper storey of the project was completed in a lightweight timber frame
Simplicity is key
Providing clear and detailed drawings helped to reduce questions from the neighbouring party wall surveyors and reduce errors on site. Croft's specialist knowledge meant that 3 flats were built to the required footprint. The team at Croft Structural + Civil continue to add value to each and every project.
