Construction of 11 private flats in the heart of Dore village, Sheffield.

Working with Wireframe Studio Ltd and Martin Evans Associates Ltd, G30 Consulting were commissioned to review the earthworks and retaining solution for a private residential development off Totley Brook Road, Dore Sheffield.

Levels on site proved challenging with existing levels falling with an average gradient of 8.5% from the north of the site towards Totley Brook Road.  At planning stage a masonry retaining wall solution had been proposed with a maximum retained height of 2.500m.

Using BIM modelling software G30 Consulting Ltd were able to model the site in 3D and by manipulating gradients across the proposed development the maximum retained height was reduced to 1.200m whilst still keeping within the constraints imposed by the Planners.
