Greetland Care Home

ABOUT PROJECT

A complicated site on Rochdale Road in Greetland, West Yorkshire, which was earmarked for development as a nursing home by Elements Construction. The site comprises a steeply sloping internal boundary, where slope instability had occurred in advance of the development. Detailed geotechnical surveys and ground modelling resulted in a design of stabilising structure works which incorporated a system of temporary structural shoring, permanent mass buttresses and cantilever RC buttresses which were integrated into the building foundations. The development required diversion of an historic mill race, together with RC basement structures, highway retaining structures and gabion slope stabilisation. Ground model images indicate the construction phases agreed between MP Consulting and the Contractor, ensuring that the first actions on site made safe the existing slope and allowed the ground worker to systematically complete the construction in a safe and logical sequence. Elements Huddersfield Following the recent completion of Huddersfield College, planning permission for a series of residential towers for student accommodation was granted on land to the rear of the multi-storey facility which was partially enabled by the college development. The site is bounded by the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, defining site ground levels and forming the agreed receptor for site drainage. MP Consulting are responsible for the design of substructure and civil engineering on the project, including piled foundation design for the 11 storey tower, access road retaining structures and below ground drainage to discharge under agreement to the canal.
