Recent Projects

 

Stanchura have been involved in a range of projects, from retaining structures to high spec developments, all requiring a variety of structural waterproofing solutions.  Here is a selection of some of our most recent work.

Boscastle

 

A contemporary, luxury family home with basement swimming pool and gym, annexe and double garage.

What We Did

  • Significant excavations and spoil removal to accommodate swimming pool and large retained areas

  • Substantial raft to main residence with provision made for large steel frame

  • Set out and implement foundations to specified engineering requirements

  • Main house - build ICF ground floor, first floor and swimming pool; provide and install intermediate beam and block floors and posijoist flat roofs, with15 year insurance backed structural waterproofing guarantee for all retained and flat roof elements

  • Masonry construction of double garage and full ICF construction of two bedroomed annexe

  • Facilitate installation of windows and doors.

Reflections

 

A bespoke 4 storey development in Downderry, Cornwall, with stunning views from Looe to Rame Head.

What We Did

  • Set out and implement foundations to specified engineering requirements

  • Build ICF formwork for all retaining elements, infill with concrete, structural waterproofing with 15 year insurance backed guarantee

  • Build ICF ground floor and intermediate posijoist floors, fit steel posts and balconies

  • Build ICF first floor, lookout and lofts, infill with concrete

  • Fit further steelwork, glulam beams and clad roof.

 

Challenges and Solutions​

  • Adverse site - steeply sloping, exposed, limited access for deliveries, no access for concrete boom pump or concrete trucks

  • Bulky materials stored offsite, small concrete line pump used rather than boom pump, concrete offloaded from trucks into 6 tonne dumpers and delivered down the hillside in reverse!

 
Fiddlers Green

 

An extensive 4 bedroomed family home and dormer garage near Redruth on a large plot with countryside views.

What We Did

  • Excavate and provide stepped foundations for triple dormer garage and large family home

  • Structural waterproofing for semi-retained garage

  • Build ICF superstructure for double storey house and dormer garage

  • Provide structural slabs for garage and main house with beam and block intermediate floor and balcony.

Ascot

 

Exclusive executive development with extensive underground basement and 'orangerie'.

What We Did

  • Provided subcontracting services to M2 Construction, to help build ICF superstructure and assist with structural waterproofing.

Challenges and Solutions

  • Permanently high water table required the extensive use of a de-watering system to facilitate construction.

  • Dirty water pumps were in constant use.

  • The use of panels placed by crane significantly sped up the build process
