Overview:

Here Natta provided a full service to design, supply and install the onsite foundations, associated drainage and external works to two modular blocks for an expanded Zoology Research Centre at Oxford University.

Scope of Works:

We carried out the full design suite for the below-ground installations including the intensive site investigations for bearing, contamination and soakage. We then designed and installed the foundations, drainage and external works. One of the buildings had an existing trunk foul sewer passing under it, so we had to design a piled bridging arrangement to facilitate the construction.

The programme to be ready for the modular unit delivery was short and required intensive coordinating of resources together with reacting to design developments in a proactive fashion.

The buildings were handed over on time to a very happy client.
