Project Summary

JPP Consulting

Parkwood Surgery, Hemel Hemstead

Foundation solution to support a steel framed extension

JPP worked closely with J Coffey Contractors to assist with their bid for the construction works. Having successfully been awarded the scheme, Coffey maintained JPP for their civil and structural design services.

The scheme involved extension of an existing doctor’s surgery, which is phased due to maintaining an operational clinic. Prior to award, JPP advised on numerous alternative solutions to enable an economical, low risk bid from the Contractor. Due to the close proximity of trees in neighbouring land, which was not highlighted on the tender documents, JPP developed an appropriate foundation solution to support a steel framed extension with composite deck floors. Upon appointment, the designs were developed into detailed construction designs to match the short delivery programme. The team reacted quickly and efficiently to resolve unforeseen drainage issues and processing local water company adoptions required for the client team.

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 ...
