Shirrell Heath : Building Regulations Approval.

Apr 18, 2019

BESPRAK is delighted to have secured full plans building control approval for our project in Shirrell Heath. This project was quite a complex one in that both the annex and double-garage were not permitted to be dug in to the soil due to the proximity of tree roots. The Structural Engineer designed a system to ensure that the structures were 'floating' above ground on a ring beam with hand-dug piles. This form of construction worked well on the isolated garage but the levels posed a problem with the new extensions, but we managed to work a sensible solution of only 300mm difference between the additions and the host dwelling. The cross sections below show the level of complexity involved.
