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.
