Basement conversion Hinckley Rd, Leicester
The objective of the basement conversion project was to increase the height of the basement from 1.8 m to 2.4 m. It was in order to convert a current fireplace shop with a disused basement underneath into an Orthodontics surgery. The approximate area of the basement was 71 sqm.
The client was also asking for openings on the ground floor to allow for a light well and two staircases into the basement. After doing some inspections and discussions we finally started the project, and ultimately delivered a calculation report and detail drawings for the underpinning the existing retaining wall, raft foundation and steel framing layout for some openings on the ground floor. All to meet the current building regulation and code of practices.
