Housing | Charles Street, Stockport

This scheme involved the Design & construction of 113 traditionally built homes, consisting of 79 houses and 34 apartments over 4 storeys, together with the associated road and drainage infrastructure, and communal play areas. The development was a mix of affordable rent and shared ownership properties built to support local people to gain a foothold on the housing ladder.

The site was a former Stagecoach depot, and required extensive demolition and remediation. The NHBC approved foundation solution required re-engineering of the made ground on this contaminated site. The top 3m of the site was excavated, to allow a site wide transfer mat to be installed at low level, following which, the made ground was re-engineered to achieve the required bearing capacity the structures upon. This work was undertaken, by our sister company, CPUK Civils & Remediation.

Reinforced strip footings were used for the houses, and a reinforced concrete raft was constructed for the apartment block.

This site has required the use of extensive temporary works across the site, in particular where we have installed large diameter deep drainage, and connections at depths of up to 6m, in made ground.
