Captain Street Coleraine
5 story building covering 600sq metres of retail units built in a busy street in Coleraine
This was a 5 storey high building covering 600sq mts of retails units, 1st floor office accommodation with area for fitness suite and the remaining 3 floors were apartments.
The location was on a busy thoroughfare, an infil site looking on to a busy petrol station between two occupied dwellings, sitting along a main road. A sudden drop from the level of the road to the site floor, nesscitated the installation of ogre pored piles with capped ringbeam to support roadway and adjacent properties. Excavations were carried out afterwards.
Due to a high water table, a special membrane and tanking procedure had to be carried out around the site. The lower ground and ground floors were poured reinforced concrete with the apartments being traditional block and plaster finishing with a trussed and tiled roof. Lift facilities were installed in the building. Deliveries had to be timed with material orders kept to a minimum due to limited storage facilities.
All hot works had to be carried out off site.
