Salesian Gardens - Oxford

This housing development in Oxford comprised of 12 flats connected to 4 terraced houses. The foundations were traditional ground bearing pads and footings. The superstructure was constructed with load bearing masonry with pre-cast concrete floor slabs in the flats and TJI joists for the flooring in the houses. The flats were built over a car parking area, so a steel frame was utilised to span over the open area. An interesting feature of this project was the projecting stairwells on each elevation. This required support to the stairs at first floor half landing level, hung below steel beams cantilevering out from with in the wall lines.
