This is a brownfield site which extends over a backfilled quary resulting in a mixed foundation design across the site. The houses are of a traditional masonry construction, typically with beam and block flooring.
A large proportion of site was designed using traditional strip foundations founding on rock. Where the proposed footprint came into contact with the back filled quarry a raft foundation was accommodated.
The surface water runoff is disposed of via a sustainable urban drainage system where individual plot soakaways are utilised. The foul discharges to the existing public sewer fronting the site.
