The team at Simplify Engineering was instructed to provide a structural solution for the construction of a new three-story school. The main challenge which our engineers had to overcome was the foundations of the building. This included large sections of backfill and overlaying sandy clay. We were required to create a solution that overcame the challenging foundations, whilst also adhering to a very strict budget.

Our solution was an engineered foundation consisting of a flat slab. The slab was placed on a series of mass concrete trench fills with a simple mesh for additional reinforcement. This innovative solution minimised the time on-site and ensured we were able to deliver an economical design that met the budget and time constraints.

By working closely with the architect and the client, we were able to deliver a high-quality structural engineering solution for the design of the school.
