Curtins have established experience of delivering deep basements on heavily constrained sites throughout the UK.
We understand the key issues of minimising the impact on adjacent buildings through a carefully considered retaining wall construction and sequence of works. We have been involved in schemes as varied as retrofitting a basement to a grade II listed building to the creation of a 6 storey basement on a constrained site. We have experience of preparing basement impact assessments and early liaising with transport authorities such as LUL when excavating adjacent to sensitive underground infrastructure. We have designed two basements which are within 5m of the Northern Line underground tunnel in London.
