Arnold Lane Residential Development, Gedling

Detailed cut and fill package

Our team provided a detailed cut and fill package at Arnold Lane, Gedling.  The development is a 1000 unit mixed use development comprising of residential dwellings, a school and a commercial area set between Arnold Lane and the newly constructed Gedling Access Road. JPP were originally appointed by Keepmoat Homes to complete the civil engineering designs for Phase 1 which had been commenced by a different consultant.

Following a successful Phase 1, JPP were appointed by Keepmoat Homes to carry out the feasibility works for Phase 2 which included; Site Constraints plans to assist with the site layout from an engineering perspective, Preliminary Engineering, Foundation Assessment and an initial cut and fill. The feasibility works then progressed to engineering support during the planning process before undertaking the full infrastructure designs for the road and sewers accompanied by a full private drainage and external levels.

A key challenge was finding cost-efficient engineering solutions for the unique ground conditions on site which saw areas of thick deposits of made ground that reached up to 10m deep in places. This required good communication between the client, the geotechnical consultant and our engineers throughout the development of the scheme.

Due to the complex topography of the site and unusual ground conditions, JPP were able to produce an incredibly detailed cut and fill package which formed a bulk earthworks tender package for the client.

Our design was split out into stages and featured heavy/deep excavations to remove and/or bury thick deposits of made ground, High Energy Impact Compaction (HEIC) of reworked made ground to provide a more economical foundations solution and reinstatement of a large surplus of organic material in the form of layering under soft landscaped areas to reduce the requirement for material offsite reducing construction costs for the client.

JPP have carried out the following works:
– Section 104 Pack
– Section 38 Pack
– Section 106 Application
– Staged Cut & Fill Ground Works Pack
– Private External Levels Design
– Private Drainage Design

JPP Consulting’s involvement was to provide structural engineering design and detailing to facilitate the inclusion of a double storey height glass box extension to the rear of the adjacent museum. The glass box has structural glass fins both providing lateral support to the elevations and vertical support to the glass roof panels. The glass extension sits on a new basement structure with the glazed box tying back to a discrete three storey steel frame structure constructed up through the basement and around the perimeter of the previous double storey height glazing adorned the existing rear elevation of the museum.78 Derngate, set in the centre of Northampton, is the only house in England designed by Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. #structuralengineering #designanddetailing #glassextension #CharlesRennieMackintosh #museum #NorthamptonImage credit – Richard Ellis ...
