New Employment Units

Broadmeadow, Teignmouth

A new development of over 22,000 ft2 of mixed use commercial space undertaken by SWH Build under a Design & Build Contract on behalf of Teignbridge District Council, the new flexible buildings will offer light industrial units, trade counters and offices of various sizes. Working closely with both the Contractor and Architect (LHC), TWP were responsible for all the structural and civil engineering works on the development. Developed on an old landfill site, fully suspended reinforced concrete substructures were required incorporating full gas protection measures used in turn to support the structural steel portal framed structures all designed in-house by TWP. The external works and below ground drainage design required the integration of both on and off-line surface water attenuation systems so as to comply with the required BREEAM Excellent rating stipulated by the Employers Requirements.
