The Swan, Aberford
We were appointed by a private developer to provide structural engineering services on a bespoke housing project in Aberford, Leeds. The development consists of the conversion of a Grade II listed Public House and a new three storey house.
The refurbishment works required a full survey of the existing building, which had previously been modified, resulting in strengthening works to the existing timber trusses. The first floor was to be removed and reinstated at a higher level, resulting in significant temporary works being required which were fully coordinated with the permanent construction.
The new house was constructed in loadbearing masonry with a complex arrangement of double height spaces and feature glazing requiring localised structural steelwork.
