Structural and Civil Engineering
BDN were appointed as Structural and Civil Engineers to provide design and engineering services to allow for the construction of the development on the former Turners garage site, Sedgefield.
The scheme comprised of 71 two, three, and four-bedroom homes for affordable rent on behalf of Livin Housing.
The ground conditions within Salters Lane were particularly challenging due to existing historical foundations with substantial made ground over.
To mitigate this, BDN liaised with Geotechnical specialists to assess challenges associated with historic structures – enhancing the design through multi-disciplinary working. This allowed us to identify solutions to suit the development, exploring options based on time, cost and suitability.
