The commercial renovation and extension of the historic Welmar Mews buildings sympathetically brought new life to the industrial stock following years of disrepair. Broadly our services comprised the following:
-The back analysis of the capacity of an existing five storey steel structure, and the justification for the construction of an additional storey comprising four flats and a trussed roof. The additional storey was designed with bespoke clear spanning timber trusses supported on a racking timber frame. Existing connections, foundations, bracing and column sections were exhaustively assessed and justified for the additional applied load, whilst a new steel framed composite structure was constructed at original roof level.
-Widespread modification of a traditional mews house to enable the construction of three new luxury apartments including a double height mezzanine space and full width glazed roofing.
– The strengthening of the existing deteriorated structural fabric of an existing three storey mews house, and the design of a new steel framed structure to provide an additional storey with infill roof terraces sprung off the existing masonry.
