We recently provided engineering services on a development of new build residential houses in Newchapel Road in Lingfield, Surrey.
The St. Anne’s housing development comprises three, timber framed, detached 3-bedroom houses located on a quiet privately-owned lane within walking distance of Lingfield town centre.
Gyoury Self provided engineering input on the substructure, below ground drainage and external paving, plus advice on support and slability of the outer brickwork cladding.
Key project challenges included designing foundations suitable for shrinkable clay soil and the foul drainage required a pump main to connect to the Southern Water Sewer in the public highway, via an on site, ‘break’ manhole and S104 gravity lateral drain. Surface water disposal was complicated by a low infiltration rate, but nonetheless we were still able to provide a fully compliant SUDS solution via a combination of soakaway and permeable paving.
The collection of high-quality properties was commissioned by Kempton Homes, a property development company based in Surrey.
The St. Anne’s project is now complete and the properties are currently available for sale. For full details and to view a project fly-through, visit the Kempton Homes website
