Brentwood, Essex CM15
The project consisted of constructing a new residential settlement containing 85 two, three and four bedroom houses and 6 one and two bedroom apartments.
The existing site was a remediated brownfield site that had also been raised in order to bring the development out of the flood zone.
The houses and apartments are all supported on reinforced concrete ground beams on circa 590 no. precast concrete driven piles. The superstructure of the buildings are typically in load bearing cavity masonry wall construction with lightweight timber and metal webbed floor joists and timber roof trusses.
As part of the works a large section of the site boundary required the installation of retaining walls along the river bank in order to achieve external ground levels required to bring the site above the flood zone level.
Site area: circa 28,000m²/ 2.8ha
