Bedford Gardens Kensington

The Bedford Gardens development is just off the Kensington Church Road in London and showcases DSA's skills in the sensitive development of a grade 2 listed mansion in Central London. The development involved the construction of a large basement beneath the rear garden to accommodate a swimming pool and leisure area. The project also consists of a major development to the rear of the property and internal alterations. The design was extremely involved due to the close proximity of the existing neighbouring properties. Contiguous piling was used to form the basement construction with a reinforced concrete lining wall and structural slabs. DSA also assisted in the design of the temporary works and party wall agreements.

Dowdeswell Court

DSA have been employed to assist in the restoration and re-generation of a grade 2* listed manor house. This includes the addition of a new contemporary family room, swimming pool, garage and plat rooms all in keeping with the traditional estate design. DSA have worked alongside many specialist consultants to provide a sustainable construction.

New Sports Hall Pitsford School

DSA were appointed by the school to assist with the civils and structural design of a new sports hall to replace the existing sports block. The development involved a significant amount of demolition works to allow the construction of the new steel frame building with steel trussed roof.

The Meath

This was a new accommodation block for The Meath Epilepsy Charity. The project was extremely complicated due to the shape of the curved roof and walls. This required a significant amount of structural detailing to ensure the curved elements of the steel structure could be achieved.

Relton Mews

Another complicated basement development in Central London, just off the Brompton Road. DSA worked closely with the developer to maximise space within the basement using reinforced underpins to keep the construction to a minimum. We also assisted with the above ground structure to ensure completion within the timescales. We also produced full temporary works design for the project.

Bedford Free School

This was a particularly difficult project as it is a two-storey vertical extension above a school to form a sports and teaching area. As you can see from the location of the building, there is minimal space to allow the vertical extension. DSA produced the design for a lightweight construction to reduce any loadings on to the existing foundations. DSA were a key member of the team assisting with the feasibility study through to the completion of the project.

Slinfold Golf & Country Club

DSA have assisted in the construction of a new golf and country club with a leisure facility, pool and communal areas. The new steel frame construction was particularly complex due to the open plan nature and long spans of beams.

Teaching block Northampton School for Boys

This was a large new extension to the existing school facilities. It involved the part demolition of some existing buildings to enable the prestigious education block to be developed. The design involved particular engineering judgement with regards to the foundation scheme adopted. The use of reinforced concrete foundations negated the need for a piling and ground beam option.

Smyth House St Andrew’s Hospital

This is a prestigious development of new wards and associated facilities for St Andrew’s Hospital which is an internationally renowned mental healthcare facility. Particular engineering judgement and design development was required due to the fact that part of the structure was below ground level and immediately adjacent to a highway and swimming pool facility.

Cardiac Wing Northampton General Hospital

This project was particularly onerous from a structural design point of view. This was due to the close proximity of the highly sensitive adjacent wards and miscellaneous accommodation of the Northampton General Hospital. It required particular intricate solutions for both the foundations and the steelwork superstructure. This was to ensure that the existing buildings and their foundations were not overloaded by the new development. The site itself was severely restricted with the emphasis placed on the constructability of the proposed design.
