Wavesmeet – Guernsey
The works at Wavesmeet involve the demolition and rebuilding of substantial residential property and a separate garage in the Vale. The main challenges with this project arose from its location – being close to the sea and sited at sea level. A series of driven piles and reinforced concrete ground beams were selected as the most appropriate method for foundations due to the poor subsoil and tidal conditions. The super-structure uses a complex steel frame due to the quantity and size of openings, with precast concrete beam and block flooring on the ground and first floors.
