JPG were appointed by HC Developments to provide Civil/Structural Engineering consultancy services for this new Residential Development in Acton. On the periphery of Acton lies Gunnersbury Lane – a main road which connects Acton Town to Acton High Street. And it is where this lane meets a pleasant residential avenue just a few minutes’ walk to leafy parks, a parade of shops and Acton Town underground station. HCD have plans to build nine intricately-designed apartments. The site is particularly difficult with the tight corner plot, constrained on all boundaries. HCD has plans to transform this site into a beautifully designed, luxury three storey residential building comprising 9 units with inset facades and roof top terrace.
JPG were able to use their vast experience to bring value to the project in arriving at an economic structural solution which incorporates loadbearing masonry and precast floors. Careful consideration and detailing was required at the interface between dwellings and at the party walls.
