The scheme for this new build mixed-use development has now progressed to tender, and is expected to be on site early 2013.
In an area of much recent regeneration, this new development will be part concrete framed, part steel framed, with a basement extending across the full area.
The building is being modelled from the outset using 3D software to ensure full integration of all design elements.

Design on this new build house has now reached tender stage, with construction anticipated to begin early spring 2013. This part traditional/part contemporary farmhouse incorporates large glazed areas, combined with high thermal mass floors. The gable ends are supported over large glazed panels using bespoke brick support systems. Architectural design by Nicolas Tye Architects. Landscaping by Sue Gilbert.
This refurbishment of an existing victorian townhouse comprises lowering of an existing lower ground floor courtyard area, with the addition of a new walk-on glazed canopy over, forming a terrace at 1st floor level. This new 2-storey part internal/part external space is being formed using a steel and glass structure.

This large house, located within regents park, has been altered and extended a number of times over the past 200 years. It is once again being refurbished and extended, with a basement extension proposed to the north west of the main building. As part of the structural works, constructure have looked at the excavation sequence, both to support the planning application, and to determine the most appropriate methods for the site and scheme. Detailed design is now underway.
This refurbishment and extension to an existing 1800′s built property in Bromley has been on site since early 2012, and is due for completion early 2013. As part of the works, a basement has been formed to half of the main building footprint, with a section of basement extending underneath the garden area also. Underpinning to the basement perimeter walls has been carried out, utilising an external RC ring beam at high level to allow a thermal break at ground floor level, and prevent the need for a structural liner wall. To the external section of basement, a Polysteel insulated formwork system has been used to speed up the construction.
Constructure were appointed in July 2012 for this refurbishment and basement extension to an existing victorian property in Wandsworth. Architectural and interior design is being carried out by Timothy Hatton Architects. As Part of the structural works, 3D models for the existing and proposed building were developed to allow the most efficient sequence of works for re-support of the existing rear facade to be determined. In doing this, it has been possible to incorporate some of the temporary works into the permanent works, thereby simplifying the construction. Early stage works are to incorporate re-support to sections of the upper level floors onto new foundations, thereby reducing the underpinning requirements internally.
An assessment was carried out on behalf of our friends at Haptic, to check their existing office roof for a temporary structure and crowd loading. This lead to a fantastic roof party on a clear summer evening, with great views across the city.
Constructure have been carrying out feasibility studies for the formation of a double basement beneath an existing double basement. Extensive investigation works and 3D modelling of existing and proposed structure plus underground services routes, have been used to determine constraints and possible solutions for the proposals.
Constructure have been appointed for structural design of this 12,000ft2 house with basement, set within private grounds. Designed in a classical style, the main entrance hallway reveals a sweeping stone staircase, with a glass lantern over. External light-wells are incorporated to provide daylighting to the basement. Option studies are currently being carried out for the construction of both superstructure and basement, with the main build expected to be on site summer 2012.
Constructure have been appointed to carry out pre-planning feasibility studies on this modern new build house in Brentwood, Essex. The proposed building incorporates a small basement, large open plan living area at ground floor, with pod type bedrooms above. Architectural design by Nicolas Tye Architects
Constructure have been given the go ahead to commence structural design for this refurbishment of a large detached house on The Bishops Avenue. The works comprise basement modifications, including reworking the current pool area, two new subterranean car lifts, internal alterations to the existing house, and ground drainage improvement works.
Constructure are engaged in designing structures for the refurbishment of this Grade II* listed building in Knightsbridge. Built in 1849 in an Italian-Romanesque style, and later extended and improved by Townsend.
The refurbishments include a new baptisimal font, necessitating substructural alterations to accommodate, as well as extensive heavy solid marble finishes and iconostasis screens throughout. Project management by Inner Circle Consulting, architectural detailing by Barrett Lloyd Davis Associates.
