Redevelopment of a former halls of residence.
The Kidderpore Avenue North Site forms a redevelopment of a former Halls of Residence that services one of the London universities.
The site covers 1.2 ha and contains a number of Grade II listed buildings which date from the mid-19th century. The proposal is to create 156 residential dwellings by way of conversion and refurbishment of four listed buildings, the conversion and extension of a further three buildings and the demolition, the replacement of a three buildings with new build structures, and the construction of new buildings and a two-storey basement car park within the grounds.
'...structural engineering and underground drainage aspects up to planning.'
Tully De’Ath have assisted on the structural engineering and underground drainage aspects up to planning. This has included a structural appraisal of the existing buildings to assess the feasibility of the proposed works, conservation engineering advice on the impact of the proposed works on the listed buildings, and engineering advice on the form and layouts of the new build structures.
Our work has extended to the preparation of a Basement Impact Assessment which has been submitted as part of the planning documents. The site lies close to a number of sensitive buildings and infrastructure – including a Victorian underground reservoir - and ground movement analysis has been needed to assess the impact of the proposed new basements on these adjacent structures.
