Wessex Close

Working with the team from Aspen Build and Stanley Bragg Architects, JMS designed the structural and civil element of this redevelopment site.  The site comprised of blocks of garages that were demolished and replaced with terraced dwellings.

The structural design was based on traditional trench foundations, with beam and block floors.  The superstructure as traditional build.

The drainage design incorporated SuDS features in permeable paving and downpipes feeding into the sub-base layer.

The development secured Code Level 4.
