No.9 Cross Street

Project Details
KTA provided the structural design from tender to construction of a three storey apartment building using a steel frame with ground floor parking on a steep sloped site in the centre of Chatham. We provided the full steel frame connection details for the fabricator to produce. Also due to the sloped topography of the site we also provided the design and reinforcement detailing for a large reinforced concrete retaining wall to the rear and side of the site. The original design by a previous designer required a piled foundation, but following the site investigation by KTA we were able to design out the piled foundation and provide a much simpler pad footing foundation arrangement.
Project Challenges
Assessing the soil conditions on the site following the demolition of the previous structure and the impact this would have on the proposed foundations
