Pheobe's Garden Centre, Catford
HL were appointed as the structural engineers for this apartment development on the site of the former Phoebes Garden Centre in Catford. The development includes construction of 25 affordable homes and 2 affordable rent properties.
The development comprises of five blocks which are constructed from load-bearing masonry with precast concrete floors and supported on a piled raft foundation. Further accommodation is provided within the steel framed roofs of each building.
The project was delivered to BIM level 3 with HL developing and sharing an Autodesk Revit Model with the Project Architect. This allowed us to quickly co-ordinate the design and resolve details including steps at enclosed terraces and the complex roof geometry.
The project benefits from a number of sustainability initiatives including solar PV panels to the pitched roofs and green flat roofs.
