Many of our larger projects are truly mixed use, we are often involved in the design and delivery of new communities where a wide range of residential, employment, educational, leisure and community uses combined with innovative infrastructure is essential for the creation of a successful new settlement. We also have a track record of delivering many mixed use leisure developments where people can enjoy a wide range of leisure activities on one location. Our wide range of technical skills enables us to be add value at all stages, from the masterplanning of a mixed use scheme right through to the detail of its delivery.
The project comprises the demolition of the existing site building and the redevelopment of the site to provide a mixed-use development comprising of up to 333 residential units, a retail food store and flexible space. Building heights ranging between 3 and 16 storeys, with associated parking and landscaping, with all necessary ancillary and enabling works.
The chosen structural solution is insitu concrete flat slab with blade columns. The inclusion of a large retail store at ground level restricting the cores reaching ground level has required careful engineering to enable the lateral loading and large vertical loads to be transferred around the retail space. The development has a landscaped podium level allowing access to all blocks at 2nd floor level. Because of the high density on the site parking is also provided at ground floor level which has driven the column layout at ground floor. This requires the introduction of localised and in some locations more extensive transfer structures.
Regeneration of the Old Imperial Buildings at Trade Street south of Cardiff Central Station. This 100-apartment scheme has the capacity to regenerate a forgotten quarter of Cardiff and create a new micro-community within a highly sustainable location. Commercial units at ground floor will help to create a dynamic street-scene.
The one to two-bedroom apartments, known as Brickworks, are expected to be ready for occupancy in Autumn 2018. The scheme will complete the existing industrial surroundings with a new build warehouse style development behind a retained façade incorporating a pair of Victorian Villas.
A unit suitable for retail, café/restaurant and other commercial uses will also be provided, together with 45 parking spaces.
The project comprises the addition of new residential apartment block, to this vast brown field development by Berkeley Homes at Kidbrooke in SE London.
Block B contains 101 apartments across 25 floors. The level below ground provide allocated car parking for the residents with lifts to the residential levels. We have been appointed to provide the structural and civil elements for this landmark project. Complexity of the structure is driven by competing floor layouts, stepping facades limited depth of London Clay in which to found the building and artesian well ground water conditions.
BIM through SCIA 3D modelling system and the sharing of electronic models of the building has enabled a simplification to the structural form of this complex structure to achieve the Planning representations, reducing expensive and space consuming transfer structures. Careful negotiations were also undertaken regarding a foundation solution within the sensitivity of a major aquifer.
The Home Park Redevelopment Masterplan will see the delivery of a mixed-use development around the home of Plymouth Argyle. This includes the redevelopment of the Mayflower Grandstand, including increased seating capacity and conferencing facilities.
The proposals also include mixed-use development at Home Park and the Western Gateway Site, which includes a range of uses such as the Mayflower Ice Arena and a 116-bed hotel.
Jubb were responsible for the transport planning, structural engineering and flood risk & drainage aspects of this project.
Key challenges resolved by Jubb involved the preparation of the Heads of Terms for an Event Management Plan to facilitate large conferencing events at Home Park, as well as the redesign of the neighbouring Park & Ride car park to maximise capacity and cater for the additional parking demand of the development proposals.”
Major Harbourside redevelopment of the historically important Barbican area in Plymouth. The project involved the construction of some 300 prestige apartments, retail units and offices up to 9 storey heights.
Jubb provided full Civil, Structural, Highway and Geotechnical Engineering Consultancy Services as well as providing the Flood Risk Assessment for the development site to PPG25 requirements, and the Environment Agency’s approval and also incorporate the Archaeologist’s requirements for protecting buried artefacts of particular historical interest in the design of the substructure and drainage works
Development of the former Wimbledon Football Club ground presented the Architect with an opportunity to create a modern high-rise development in an attractive riverside setting.
The development includes undercroft and basement parking, landscaped podiums, private and affordable accommodation, a community centre, doctor’s surgery, retail areas and restaurants.
The basement was cut up to 4m deep into the London Clay sub-soil with open excavation allowing traditional reinforced concrete retaining walls and raft foundations to be used with anchor piles to resist groundwater uplift.
As part of Welcome Break’s rolling programme of redevelopment and refurbishment of their suite of Service Stations across the country, Sarn Services, off the M4 Junction 36, will have a new Reception and parking facilities.
The existing dated facilities will be demolished and replaced with a new 4000 sq.ft amenity building housing Burger King, Starbucks, WH Smith, gaming and bathroom facilities with supported staffing areas. In addition to the new amenity building a new 4000m2 car park with Starbucks Drive-Thru facilities and 5000m2 lorry and bus parking will be provided to compliment the pre-existing petrol filling station.
The Lychgate Centre was constructed in early 1960’s and will be given a major Facelift under a three-phase contract. The £7.0m first Phase has gained Planning Approval and plans have been developed which include major demolition work to provide larger, higher individual retail units. In addition to major changes to vertical circulation, demolishing existing cores and forming new stair, lift and escalator wells. The project also involves the creation of a new 3-storey infill extension in steel framed composite construction to minimise the lettable retail area. Jubb provided full Civil, Structural, Highway & Transportation consultancy services on this project for the initial feasibility work through to completion.
Shaw Ridge, Swindon is a modern retail and leisure park which includes a luxury 150 bed hotel complete with full leisure facilities, multiplex cinema, retail and fast food units together with new access routes and a 1000 space car park
This mixed use, four level scheme extended the existing Jackson Square Shopping Centre by over 120,000 sq.ft with Sainsbury’s as the main anchor and provided a new 700 space multi-storey car park. In addition, the development delivered 200 apartments and opened up British Waterway’s River Stort Navigation to form a new vibrant public square.
Jubb were the Structural and Drainage Engineers for this project and provided planning and detailed construction design services for flood risk mitigation, geotechnical, contaminated land remediation and urban drainage. The surrounding land had a recent history of flooding and we worked in close collaboration with the EA, East Herts DC, British Waterways and Herts Highways to devise and refine a comprehensive flood mitigation strategy for the development. This included detailed catchment modelling, channel improvement works, overland flood routes, covered storage areas and flood warning procedures whilst protecting the riverside landscape and wildlife.
West 12 Shopping Centre provides 290,000 ft2 of shops, restaurants and a 12 screen cinema. Jubb have been providing Structural and Civil Engineering consultancy services for various adaptations, alterations and extensions to the Centre over the last five years.
The latest phase saw the conversion of a redundant 1970’s, four storey concrete framed office block into a 128 bed hotel for Accor. Following a detailed structural and condition survey of the existing building, plans were developed to retain the main frame and key shear walls whilst removing a central stair and lift core. New ‘bookend’ wings were then added at both end of the building together with an additional floor level and new plantrooms all in lightweight steel framed construction. Working in confined and low headroom conditions, piled raft foundations were installed to support the new five/ six storey structure whilst retaining and tying in to the existing building.
23-storey reinforced concrete tower, student accommodation scheme in the centre of Portsmouth. The development provides over 500 beds wrapped around a full height atrium, plentiful communal space and retail units.
The form of construction was carefully considered with an RC frame option and pre-cast concrete option developed in unison. To streamline the design process and provide the most economical design, Jubb have utilized the latest 3D modelling software linking between structural analysis and drafting.
The proposed development makes use of all the available site, building right up the boundary. The former building had a partial basement as does one of the adjacent properties. This lead to some challenging foundation solutions which have been designed in conjunction with the temporary and construction works.
This major redevelopment of an 18-hectare, former caravan park in a prime location at Seaton, created 500 residential units, a hotel, 70,000 sq ft of food retail and a themed Visitor Centre.
The site’s low-lying location adjacent to environmentally sensitive marshes and the River Axe created challenging Flood Risk issues which had to be resolved. Jubb developed an innovative “environmentally positive” flood risk strategy which was enthusiastically supported by the Environment Agency securing planning permission for the whole development.
Following the outline works reserved matters for the residential Housing, Tesco Store, Visitor Centre and Hotel site have been supported by subsequent reporting and assessment.
As part of the Town Centre regeneration, The Rhiw scheme is one of the first large developments earmarked by the Local Authority. Situated on the site of the existing multi-storey car park on the river front and adjacent to The Rhiw Shopping Centre, it provides a new focal point for the Town Centre.
The multi-storey car park provides 248 spaces, including disabled and parent and toddler, in a vibrant well-lit welcoming environment with easy access to the adjacent shopping centre. Structurally independent but Architecturally linked, the four-storey residential building adjoins the car park with the undercroft parking at ground floor and A3 unit at first.
The Exchange at Bridgewater created a multi-purpose office, conference centre, gymnasium, cafe and childcare nursery facilities all within a vibrant contemporary building.
Constructed of cost effective traditional structural materials and methods of working the building overlooks the River Parrat and incorporated sustainable materials and adopted SUDS drainage systems to further enhance its environmental credentials.
