House Building: Housing Projects
Tuffnells Way, Harpenden
2011 - 2013
Build Cost; £610,000
Following a period of 12 months tendering, we secured the project to build the clients new build hose.
The property was to become a 5 bedroom detached house incorporating a large basement area.
One of the most importanat parts of the construction was the "temporary works" that were required to enable the main house constrction. We needed to insert 64 contiguous piles alongside the party wall line of the 2 neighbouring houses, below ground, before we could excavate the large basement.
The basement was constrcted using a Pudlow waterproof concrete product.
Loop constructed the house up until the plastering and electrics were complete. However, the client did not have the finance to complete the finishes and a dispute arose before the contract was terminated and Loop were settled for their outstanding costs.
