Central Park Café
Plymouth

Opened in June 2019, Meadow Café is a purpose-built eatery in Central Park Plymouth with a wildflower roof, a large amount of glazing and canopy-covered external seating. The Café is the flagship project of the overall Central Park improvement works. The building is curved on plan and constructed in timber and masonry with exposed bolted connections to the main structural timber members. The lintels to the curved walls were carefully detailed to use standard sections where possible with cut plate forming the curves rather than the more expensive option of bending the entire section.

Jubb provided the Civil Engineering services including external levels & finishes and the drainage system.  Due to the use of a wildflower roof, no further flow control or surface water attenuation systems were required by the Lead Local Flood Authority or South West Water.

Jubb provided Structural and Civil Engineering services to Plymouth City Council during the initial designs and where novated to the Design and Build Contractor for the final design.

Woodgate Road, Liskeard
Cornwall, UK

Jubb helped drive the Woodgate Road scheme from consultation through to securing planning permission working closely with our client and the Local Authority (Cornwall County Council) in order to provide a scheme that was acceptable both for adoption and to the end client/user. This included providing connectivity to the local area and dealing successfully with various site constraints. Some of which included site sensitive tree species with Tree Preservation Orders, sympathetic lighting design across the site and boundaries to maintain bat corridors and maintain where possible existing hedge lines across the site to minimise ecological impact.  Following planning approval Jubb were employed to provide civil and structural design on a “Design & Build” contract to take the project to completion.  The Woodgate Road development consists of 40 mixed open market and social housing dwellings in the market town of Liskeard.  Whilst a relatively small development, the project had its share of civil and structural problems to overcome.  Due to existing topography it was essential to try and balance cut & fill to reduce cart away costs and provide earth stabilisation solutions to the bottom boundary and pump station.

Jubb provided full civils design along with flood risk assessments, ground investigation reports and a travel plan in support of the Planning Application.

Gallows Hill

Warwick, UK
Gallows Hill
Warwick, UK

Jubb supported Gallagher Estates in developing a 24Ha greenfield site at Land South of Gallows Hill. The development consisted of 450 residential units to be served by a primary spine road, SuDS features and two new signal controlled junctions. Both new junctions involve partial dualling of Gallows Hill and Europa Way (A452). Jubb worked with Gallagher Estates to establish earthworks, infrastructure and drainage strategies for the site and identified how to overcome challenging topography to provide surface water attenuation for the site whilst also conforming to public open space requirements.

Jubb produced detailed design of the primary spine road and associated infrastructure through the development to meet the local authority and water authority’s adoption requirements. The steep nature of the site resulted in significant re-modelling of earthworks in lower lying areas to accommodate a detention basin adopted as public open space. This involved diverting the Tach Brook Tributary which was detailed by Jubb to gain approval from the local authority.

Jubb were appointed to provide specialist land remediation advice along with detailed civil and structural engineering input for a new 250 unit residential site in Sittingbourne.  Historically, parts of the site were a former gas works with the remainder forming a precast yard for Milton Pipe.  Consequently, the land was underlain by significant ground contamination and required extensive remediation of in situ soils and ground water plus residual risk management measures to dwellings and garden spaces.  The engineering challenges of the scheme were complex, and Jubb was instrumental in developing cost effective solutions to the constraints posed by contamination, difficult topography, boundary constraints and spatial constraints.

Grove Airfield
Oxfordshire, UK

Jubb are supporting Persimmon with the development of the 141Ha site on the former Grove Airfield.  Jubb are providing support on the main infrastructure and SUDS drainage solutions, global earthworks strategy and providing parcel support for the detailed civil engineering design.

The primary infrastructure for highways has been designed in detail and is being taken through technical approval with Oxfordshire County Council, with the SUDS drainage systems being offered for approval through the Vale of White Horse Lead Local Flood Authority through the planning process.  Surface and Foul drainage is being offered under Section 104 for adoption by Thames Water and Jubb are liaising closely with Thames on a bespoke agreement to provide a Strategic Sewer and Pumping Station for the area of Grove as a whole, which will be situated within the development.

The SUDS strategy allows for the phased approach to the formation of swales and ponds, whilst maintaining flows from the remaining undeveloped areas during the build.  Multiple control features have been developed in order to maximise the storage within the swales and ponds in order to achieve a 32% reduction in the greenfield discharge rates, to improve downstream flooding.

As parcels are brought forward for development, the drainage and earthworks strategies are further refined to ensure the most efficient solutions are identified.

Jubb supported Gallagher Estates with this 66Ha greenfield site for ‘disposal for residential’ development. Jubb worked alongside Gallagher Estates to establish site wide strategies for earthworks, drainage and infrastructure providing holistic models to inform viability and potential phasing.

The primary infrastructure for highways and drainage was designed in detail and taken through to technical approval with Warwickshire County Council and Severn Trent Water. The highway infrastructure included a new primary estate road and bus route through the site with several new junctions to the existing highway network as well as off-site alterations.

The surface water drainage strategy for the site was designed to provide flexibility in the phasing of the site development. Attenuation ponds were designed to meet the local council’s requirements for adoption and to make use of the existing fishing ponds while tying in with the proposed landscape strategy.

The Bath Quays Waterside Project is an essential flood mitigation and flood defence project, including works to the north and south banks of the river between Churchill Bridge and Midland Bridge to address the negative impacts of climate change.

The works will reduce existing and future flood risk to the Lower Bristol Road and over 100 residential and commercial properties on the South side of the river through the provision of new flood defences and furthermore provide the flood mitigation to enable the redevelopment of the Bath Quays and Manvers Street development sites in order to realise the Council’s ‘Bath Quays’ project and deliver new jobs and homes.

The project includes flexible workspace, Council Chambers and meeting spaces on a site alongside Coleg Gwent, in a modern BREEAM Excellent building and new working practices.

The redevelopment between Little Mill and Usk includes a two-storey 2,564 sq.m building in two wings linked by a glazed area and a 200 space car park. Situated on the Coleg Gwent Rhadyr campus in Usk in many aspects it is a traditional building with steel frame, and pad and strip foundations.

The ground floor features a glazed atrium at its entrance, open plan offices, conference and meeting rooms. A bridged link provides informal seating on the first floor together with the debating chamber, members and chief executive offices. The main open plan offices have has 200 work stations for 400 staff and 43 Councillors using a flexible working system.

To achieve a BREEAM rating of Excellent, the scheme has natural lighting and ventilation, incorporating traditional and contemporary materials and green features such as solar panels and recycled water tanks and a biomass boiler.

The location gave rise to several hurdles to be overcome in order to start of construction in accordance with the programme Jubb negotiating intensively with the Environment Agency in relation to securing Flood Defence Consent, approval for changes to the private foul pumping station, flood evacuation plan and flood protection, all balanced against ecological issues and conflicts.

New Production Facility
Fareham, Hampshire

Structural design for a new production facility at Daedalus, Gosport. This new facility will has a production floor of c.4500m² and a two-storey office facility attached, providing approximately 800m² of meeting, offices and canteen facilities.

With poor ground conditions the solution was to provide a piled slab solution to cope with the extremely heavily loaded production floor. By rationalising the loading from the machines and forklifts we were able to manage to limit foundation costs. Jubb were appointment to provide services up to Stage 3+ to enable to Client to procure the project on a D&B basis. Due to the complexity of the final machine fit-out and the extremely tight tolerances on construction to match manufacturing requirements, the Client decided to retain Jubb on the Client side throughout the project.

This 104-acre mixed B-Class Business and Industrial Park is situated next to Junction 23 of the M5. With planning consent of 1.5m sq.ft of floor area, the development received support from the RDA as a strategic employment site and has been developed out on a Plot by Plot basis extending the infrastructure to suit to minimise the developer’s upfront costs. The site is now almost complete and includes office units, distribution centres, industrial building, a hotel and conference centre.

Soft alluvium and peat to a depth of 30m, the construction of a 3km flood protection embankment, a flat, tide locked site in an area with serious surface water drainage problems next to the ecologically important SPA of the river estuary were all significant constraints that were overcome with our innovative Engineering design solutions.

In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, our business resilience planning is now being implemented.  Whilst we have not closed our offices at this time, we have empowered all staff to work remotely should they choose to do so, and our business infrastructure is fully enabled to seamlessly support the transition to this style of working.  Additionally, Government advice may shortly dictate the need for us to make the closure of offices compulsory in the interests of safeguarding wider public health.

We continue to be fully operational but these measures are likely to produce a change to our working patterns.

You may therefore find that you have difficulty reaching us by our main office and direct dial landline telephone numbers but all staff can be still contacted by email, mobile numbers and Microsoft Teams.
