JPP Consulting

Chestnut Road, Yardley Gobion

Structural Engineering Services

Our Special Projects team, lead by Danny Barber, was instructed to provide Structural Engineering services at this private dwelling in Yardley Gobion.

Temporary propping was amended to suit the contractors proposed sequence of works. JPP issued sketch proposals for the revised temporary propping for the contractor’s comments. JPP issued final comments on the beam & block floor layouts. Our team also provided details of additional lintels required to support the first floor corbelled chimney above the old dining room.

JPP provided details for replacement first floor joists above the old dining room and advised of possible remedial details to strengthen the ends of the rotten joists in lieu of replacing the entire joist. We issued updated temporary propping drawings & calculations for the proposed sequence of works and commented on superstructure cracking which had occurred during the works and confirmed that this was to be expected with works of this nature. All cracking was made good on completion of the works. JPP confirmed that underpinning would be required to the external wall of the old dining room.

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 ...
