Double garage and loft room, Cheshire
Garage with loft space above
A red brick, timber clad double garage replaced an old flat roof garage. The floor level was lowered so the new concrete slab would align with re-laid, granite set drive. Consultancy advice given on demolishing the old garage and assistance with the new build, building into a sandstone cliff face.
Responsibilities of Over-see:
• Drawing plans
• Engineering calcs for reinforcing sandstone cliff walls, and steel beams for loft space
• Assisted with concrete pour and reinforced steel panels
• Internal tanking, water membrane required for all three cliff facing sides
• Project management consultation
Challenges: ensuring the sandstone cliff face was stable after excavation; a water membrane was fitted to protect the new structure from water run off from the surrounding banks, making sure there were adequate channels to allow this to happen.
