Woodland Grove

Project Summary

This 72-bed care home with nursing in Loughton, Essex is built across three floors and with exceptional communal spaces.

The complex is a traditional, purpose-built and elegant care home with 72 private, en-suite rooms.

Our Approach

To design the civil and structural engineering aspects of the 3-storey executive care home to accommodate the surrounding constraints.
  • To provide foul and surface water drainage design to accommodate the existing nursing home rooms and communal facilities
  • All rooms were equipped with their own bathrooms which required outlets along with internal hairdressers and kitchen facilities
  • Surface Water attenuation was incorporated into the designs to avoid flooding within the system
  • In addition, we provided structural design and details to facilitate the architectural proposals for the ground, first and second floors along with all access arrangements including staircases and external balconies
  • Foundations were designed to accommodate the extensive existing trees within the boundary which resulted in deep trench excavation
  • All floors were designed as pre-cast concrete and supported on masonry and steelwork where required.
