New Hall Lane, Preston
JPG were appointed as Structural Engineers on this redevelopment of a former mill complex located on the gateway to Preston city centre. The new development is a mixed use scheme comprising of a supermarket, 93 residential apartments and a 25,000 sq ft bingo hall.
A variety of construction methods were incorporated including a reinforced concrete frame to the supermarket, steel frame to the bingo hall and load bearing masonry to the apartments.
The structures are supported on CFA piled foundations. The supermarket was constructed using a part single storey and part twostorey reinforced concrete frame. This acted as a transfer structure to support three storeys of loadbearing masonry apartments which were constructed over part of the supermarket.
