The Windmill Views project includes construction of ninety-five new dwellings together with access, car and cycle parking, landscaping and associated works.

Artists impression of Isfield properties

Culpeper Close, Isfield

Our latest bespoke residential development project for Lavender Homes Ltd has now started on site in Isfield, East Sussex.

The new build development to the west of Culpeper Close will deliver a collection of 10 high-end two, three and four-bedroom properties with associated landscaping, amenities and parking.

The two-storey properties will be timber framed, supported on piled, reinforced concrete raft foundations. This was chosen as the safest and most practical foundation, providing an all-weather solution to take the risk out of bad weather during the build.

Foul water disposal is via a centralised pump station to the public sewer. Surface water is attenuated and stored in a voided, granular sub-base, below the access road, before discharge at a controlled rate to a nearby watercourse.

Designed by Crowther Associates Architects, the bespoke residential homes feature a blend of weatherboarding and decorative brickwork with projecting headers creating a textured effect. The architectural design reflects the existing contextual language, alongside familiar scale, massing and forms that add a contemporary approach to local distinctiveness.

Gyoury Self is providing full structural and civil engineering services across the development. The building contractor is CBG Construction.

If you wish to follow progress of the Culpeper Close development, please follow us on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

Grand Designs Self Build

In case you missed it, our triangular house project in Billinghurst has just been featured on Grand Designs!

We started engineering the self build project for local master carpenter Olaf Mason back in 2019 but have had to keep it under wraps until now.

The triangular house has been described by Grand Designs as one of the most ‘challenging’ self build projects featured on the popular Channel 4 TV show. Watching the project unfold certainly made for entertaining viewing!

To find out more about the challenges and view completion photos, visit our Grand Designs House Case Study

If you missed the Billingshurst, Sussex, 2021 episode on Grand Designs last week, you can catch up at All 4 / Grand Designs

Look out for the 3D animated construction sequence which was made using the 3D Revit model created in-house by engineering technician Charlie White.

We have been enormously impressed by Olaf Mason’s self build skills and attention to detail. We wish he and his family every happiness in their new home.

Natural Fit Brighton & Hove opens

We are delighted to announce that the new Natural Fit Brighton and Hove wellness centre is now open.

Commissioned by holistic fitness and leisure company Natural Fit, the new wellness centre is sited within the former St. Agnes Church in Newtown Road, Hove. The contemporary conversion houses the centre’s bespoke gym, spa, fitness studios and health-inspired café facilities over three storeys.

Much of the original church exterior has been preserved, and the sympathetically-designed internal conversion takes advantage of the church’s great architecture. The original Gothic-style leaded light windows provide a unique setting and ambiance for a wellness centre.

Aside from the main facilities, the new centre offers massage and skin treatments, osteopathy, corrective exercise and other exercise including one-to-one sessions and group classes. This is in keeping with Natural Fit’s ethos which places an emphasis on a holistic approach to health and fitness.

One of the key project challenges was installation of the two-storey steel frame within the confines of the project’s historical church setting. This was addressed as part of the design process. Spider cranes were used as their compact size and heavy lifting power is ideal for construction tasks on constricted sites.

Kent Structures was the main contractor on this project and Gyoury Self was appointed to provide full structural and civil engineering services; including structural design of the steel frame. The steel frame was fabricated by Southfield Structural Services.

Natural Fit Brighton and Hove is one of two new facilities housed within interesting historic buildings that we have engineered for Kent Structures. The Natural Fit Tunbridge Wells facility is sited within a period bank building of architectural significance on Calverley Road, Tunbridge Wells.

Artists inpression of sports stand

South Shields FC Spectator Stand

Construction of new state-or-the-art covered spectator stand at South Shields Football Club stadium is well underway.

Planning for the new 600-seat (approx.) covered stand at 1st Cloud Arena was approved earlier this year by South Tyneside Council.

Spectator stand under constructionA fly-through animation recently posted by South Shields FC gives a glimpse into what the club supporters can expect to see in the near future. Alongside the covered seating terraces, proposed new facilities include enclosed boxes, meeting/function rooms, a large bar/lounge area and merchandise shop.

The new stand is currently under construction along the Shaftesbury Avenue side of the ground adjacent to the pitch. The steel frame is already in place and concrete terracing is being fitted.

The bespoke stand was designed and fabricated by Stadium Solutions who are also carrying out the build. Gyoury Self was appointed as consulting structural engineers to provide detailed designs for the 6-tier steel frame and strip foundations.

The new main stand forms part of a programme of works that will improve the existing facilities at the ground. We look forward to seeing the completed project later this year.

Model of new NHS hospital extension

Langley Green Hospital Extension

Construction is underway on our latest NHS extra care project at Langley Green Hospital in Crawley, West Sussex.

Langley Green is a state-of-the-art hospital for people with acute mental health problems. The new unit will provide de-escalation and seclusion facilities for use in the event of a mental health emergency.

Photo of NHS hospital steel frameWork includes reconfiguration of existing internal spaces and a new single storey steel-framed extension, which is being built within a semi-enclosed courtyard space just north of the hospital entrance.

The single-storey steel frame and masonry building includes an en-suite seclusion room, staff observation area, de-escalation space with calming sensory environment and private external spaces. It has been designed to help reduce any violent or self-destructive behaviour that poses a threat to the physical safety of the patient, a staff member, or others.

Gyoury Self was appointed by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to provide full structural and civil engineering services. Design is by AWW Architects, Vinci Construction is the main contractor, and Currie & Brown is managing delivery of the project.

Stone Balcony Restoration, Hove

We recently engineered a cantilever stone balcony restoration project at a historic Listed building in Brunswick Terrace, Hove.

The existing stone was heavily cracked and had to be replaced like-for-like with new Portland Stone. The original ironwork balustrades were removed and refurbished before being reinstalled. Additional waterproofing was also added beneath the balcony.

Gyoury Self provided an assessment of the existing structure and engineering input for the replacement of heavily cracked stonework. The project surveyor was MacConvilles and the building works were carried out by Deacons Building Services Ltd. Stone masonry work was undertaken by Stacy Gillingham.
