Samarès is a new residential development consisting of a combination of one, two- and three-bed units in semi-detached, terraced two-storey houses and a number of three-storey apartment blocks, all built on existing agricultural and commercial land. The buildings were generally timber framed with external masonry cladding.
The structural design was challenging due to the difficult ground conditions, requiring T&G to come up with a innovative solution. This involved the use of soil mix ground stabilisation methods, which in turn reduced costs and the length of the construction programme. A comprehensive drainage scheme (including a Sustainable Urban Drainage System – SuDS) was designed for the whole site of approximately 45000 m2.
T&G’s Imagineering team undertook a 3D survey of one of the completed houses so that the client could showcase the development to potential tenants.
