Structural Engineers, Surveyors & Construction Consultants with offices in London & West Midlands
Glencross and Hudson have successfully carried out the design of numerous basements over the last six years with many more years experience in retaining wall and underpinning foundation design.
Our experience ranges from small cellar conversions to large basements under houses and gardens, with some our basement designs including swimming pools.
Basement construction requires a team of professionals to ensure that the finished basement is completed to a high standard and most importantly is completed safely. We work closely with Architects, party wall surveyors and your contractors, tailoring designs to suit internal layouts, environmental issues and contractor’s methods of working.
At Glencross and Hudson, we have experience in designing temporary works for above ground and below ground projects for contractors. We also offer supervision of the works, when requested or as required as a condition of planning.
Local Authorities, particularly in London, have implemented planning criteria for proposed basement developments, where applicants must prove to planners that their proposals can be constructed without having a detrimental effect on the neighbouring properties and the environment.
Glencross and Hudson are familiar with and keep abreast of changes to planning requirements and can assist clients in providing a design and/or a Construction Method Statement /Assessment to comply with the planning requirements.
