Haydon, Housing Development

Eastwood & Partners have been involved with many of the thousands of new homes which have recently been constructed on former farmland outside Swindon.

We have worked with several developers and undertaken various aspects of civil, structural and geo-environmental design.

Eastwood & Partners have completed numerous investigations of the land parcels, including providing desktop studies, undertaking trial pits, boreholes, laboratory analyses and comprehensive geo-environmental reports including risk assessments.

We designed the foundations using appropriate solutions such as trenchfill, piling, pier and beam, or rafts depending upon the particular ground conditions encountered at each location.

Eastwood and Partners have also completed structural appraisals for many of the house types and designed the superstructures of several apartment blocks using precast concrete floors on load-bearing masonry walls.

We have also completed several culvert designs, including gaining technical approval and supervision of their construction as well as advising on slope stability.
