Farleigh Meadows, Tiverton

24th September 2018 / Pete Cadwallender

TWP have been involved with this housing development in Tiverton working alongside Taylor Wimpey since 2014. Located on the outskirts of the town with views out across the river, our services have included full structural engineering design along with working closely with the client to achieve an aesthetically pleasing landscape across the site.

Ground conditions on the site have been challenging with many large oak trees which have been retained along with the presence of shrinkable soils which has lead to careful consideration of the foundation type to be adopted with many plots being constructed on piled foundations.

The topography of the site with steep falls and gradients to the gardens and external works has required the use of extensive retaining structures which we have fully designed & detailed.
