Project Description

Project: Mead Court, Affordable Housing
Client: Rosebery Housing Association
Location: Epsom, Surrey
Year Completed: 2018
Value: £2.4m (total cost for both projects)
Contractor: Bramber Construction
Architect: David Seaman Partnership

Mead Court is a residential housing block consisting of six flats with associated parking and landscaping. This modern social housing complex was constructed as an in-fill project on a site formerly serving as a garage and parking area.

We worked in close collaboration with the design and build team led by Bramber Construction to deliver Mead Court; one of two affordable housing projects in Epsom engineered for Rosebery Housing Association. The other project is Wren Close.

The Mead Court housing block is of traditional construction with masonry cavity walls supporting a timber trussed roof structure. Flooring is suspended beam and block on the ground floor, with suspended concrete plank flooring on levels above.

The foundations were traditional concrete strips deepened to account for nearby trees and a significant amount of made ground underlying the building.

The Challenges

Gyoury Self undertook all aspects of Structural and Civil Engineering at Mead Court.

Project challenges included obtaining a ‘build over’ agreement with Thames Water as a 300mm diameter sewer drain runs underneath the development.
