Structural Engineering designs for Beachside Home

Catch House is a two-story new build home in Seasalter, Kent. This beachside has been designed to maximise the sea views and reflect the local historic vernacular. 

The house, swimming pool and plantroom was built on a reinforced concrete piled raft due to the instability of the existing ground. The lower ground to ground floor structure is constructed using reinforced concrete elements with side walls acting as retaining elements. The ground floor to roof structure is constructed using mixture of timber and steel.   The main access to the building is provided through a bridge which spans over the back courtyard to the parking area.  Number of retaining walls were also incorporated into the design in order to maintain the existing ground conditions along the boundary line.
