Upton Flats

SECTOR: Residential
PROJECT VALUE: £6m

Project Summary

JPP Consulting

Initial concept design for a terraced block of 4 / 5 storey flats included a structural steel frame built of piled ground beam foundations with masonry infill panels.

We were invited by a ‘Design and Build’ contractor to evaluate the structural concept and offer alternatives, which would bring cost savings. Following our appraisal the solution of a loadbearing masonry superstructure supporting precast concrete flooring panels, built of mass concrete trench fill foundations brought significant cost savings leading to the contract being awarded to our client.

A major consideration in the design of the external masonry panels was in respect of the window fenestration. In all respects our design input assisted in achieving an ‘excellent’ BREEAM rating.

Today the JPP Group are saying a very sad farewell to a wonderful friend and colleague who passed away recently.

Nick Stairs was with JPP for over 30 years and was instrumental in growing and developing our company. He was an amazing mentor to our young engineers and we were so fortunate to have worked alongside him.

Nick was and will always be one of our JPP family. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
