Pearson Park, Hull

 

BDN provided various structural engineering services for the renovations of Pearson Park, Hull, as part of the park’s £3.8 million National Lottery Heritage Fund restoration project. The structural work included a new bridge, bandstand, conservatory and upgrades to the roads. 

The park’s 150-year-old Gateway arch, which has recently been awarded Listed status, was structurally inspected by our engineers, to assess the extent of the corrosion to the structure. As a result of the findings, work began to restore and repair the historic arch, reimposing traditional Victorian features utilising historical photographs and original drawings.  

A structural survey and inspection of the park’s existing conservatory suggested demolition was the best option, therefore new foundations and drainage were created for the development of a new Victorian conservatory, to honor and replicate the original designs.
