The project comprised of the construction of a two-storey medical practice and pharmacy on a sloping site, together with access roads, car parking and landscaping for a private Client.

The superstructure was a mixture of both steelwork and timber glulam, with a sedum roof and foundation solution comprising of driven piles and reinforced concrete ground beams.

The drainage aspects of the project comprised of surface water attenuation design in line with the requirements of the Environment Agency and diversions of large diameter land drainage and foul drainage to the approval of the local drainage authority.

Further civil aspects for the site included cut and fill analysis to both maximise disposal of site-won material and reduce retaining wall heights and liaison with the highway authority regarding new site access.
