pdp Green

Structural Engineering Project:
Truro Technology Park

New Business Park, Truro, Cornwall

This is a development of three Office buildings on a promontory overlooking the Truro River at the edge of Truro City.

pdp Green carried out option studies based upon fairly detailed ground investigations and through Value Engineering workshops proposed a rafted substructure and ground engineering with costs comparable with simple, traditional, trouble free ground foundations for the first two buildings (now completed) and tubular, mini-piling for the third building, utilising high frequency driving techniques to avoid possible instability of the filled ground.
