Large Scale Basement Works
During the course of previous years, we have expanded into doing large scale basement works for large scale commercial clients that specialising in developing residential property.
We refer to our case study in respect of our works to construct a 500m2 basement.
Our works involve the design of the basement structural engineering, waterproofing, drainage and other associated works.
We have our own in-house design team that is able to specify the works and develop a cost-effective project. The benefits of using our in-house design team is that its experience is site related and real-world conditions.
Regardless whether the works are large or small basements; the works involve significant levels of excavations, that can be deep, and these sections of the works need to be managed with the designed locked in right at the beginning of the works. We have been in a situation where the client team designed the drainage system late in the day, requiring us to excavate part of the already excavated basement to a depth of 9.5 metres to accommodate the installation of the foul pumping station.
In the early stages of the project prior to the actual physical start of the works, we confirm all information with the client such as the design of the waterproofing scheme and its acceptance by the home warranty provider, the methodology as well as the risk assessment of doing the works, with the other elements of cost savings and asking the questions can the design be changed to save additional costs, like do we need to pile the site and if the excavations and works can be done on a piecemeal bases.
For more information about our work please see our case studies and more information about the skills and the services we can offer through our in-house design team.
