Prefabricated Houses

We developed structural designs for foundations and retaining structures, to prepare a platform for the erection of 34 prefabricated houses on top of a plateau.

The main challenge of the project was ensuring that loads close to the slope did not cause erosion, and destabilise the embankments especially during construction.  This required careful consideration of the construction loads and building sequence

We were instrumental the design of a variety of earth retaining structures across the entire site. The design work enabled the retention of steep slopes within a limited space, without encroaching on a party wall boundary on one side of the site.
