We received a referral project from one of our partners in Essex which was asking to provide Building regulation package for a 2-story side extension. The plans have been approved by Basildon council. The new extension made of different structures, common cavity walls for ground floor and timber frame with cladding for the first floor which cantilevered about one meter from the front side. We requested the job description and all the information from the client including the set of existing and proposed plans, DWG file, the Drain and tree survey, and soil report. There were some trees with 4.5 m height at a distance of 12 meters from the extension and also main sewer pipe was adjacent to the new foundation. So our structural engineer had to design a suitable foundation to solve these problems.
Still, we manage to deliver the project within 4 days, consisted of structural design, and building regulation package with unique details for the timber frame.
