HOUSING DEVELOPMENT ON ENGINEERED FILL WITH REINFORCED FILL RIVER BANK SLOPE

A new housing development was proposed on a former industrial site in Frome, Somerset. Before development could proceed, the site needed to be levelled by importing soil to upfill low areas by as much as 7 metres, and a 6m high reinforced fill slope built to bound the adjacent River Frome. A variety of foundation solutions were then designed to suit the various geotechnical scenarios within the reformed site. DISCOVER MORE >>
