COMPLETION

2009

This development in Aldershot, Surrey, consisted of 4 retail units at ground floor, with four stories of residential flats above. Due to the nature of the different layouts between ground and first floor a podium transfer slab was utilised at first floor level. This provided the platform for four stories of timber frame construction for the 36 flats. The foundations for this project were piled based upon column layout and the loads derived from modelling the transfer slab. This was done using a finite element software package inputting the loads provided by the timber frame design.
