Project Summary

External Works, Highway Alignment and Drainage Design

Our team in Poole (formerly known as Smith Foster) provided infrastructure and structural engineering design for this boutique collection of nineteen homes, designed by Boon Brown Architects, built in the exclusive 165-acre woodland estate in Midhurst.

The project was led by Metis Homes on a design and build basis and we worked closely with the successful contractor to deliver design and construction efficiencies through close collaboration.

Our infrastructure design comprised the external works, highway alignment and foul and surface water drainage design, including full liaison with the local authority and local water authority. With the site sloping in two directions the road alignment was carefully considered to balance the cut and fill to minimise groundworks costs. The drainage design was streamlined to minimise the number of inspection chambers and drainage runs.

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 ...
