Wyboston 81 bed Care Home

The new 81 bed care home in Wyboston is progressing well with our Ward Structure team on site.

The foundations were piled due to the granular nature of the ground and the high water table, which made excavation of traditional strip footings impossible.

The piling works and ground beams have now been complete with drainage installation underway before the ground floor planks are installed this week.

The main structure is load bearing masonry with some cantilever steelwork supports used to produce projecting bays at first and second floor.

Basement included within residential home to maximise space

Ward Structural and Civil Engineering team are currently working on a scheme at a residential site in Wheldrake, York. Due to planning restrictions, the scheme has been designed to incorporate a basement, within the two-storey building, in order to maximise space.

Our team have provided structural engineering services including detailed design of the basement structure and superstructure. Ward also designed and detailed the drainage to the site including an attenuated surface water system.

The basement box has now been complete, with blockwork due to commence on Monday 20 October, with ground floor planks due the following week.
