The regeneration of an existing underutilised National Trust Park by Lake Windermere. The project includes a new café, sailing club building, glamping pods, camping barn and a jetty into the lake.
Drainage proved a challenge with no United Utilities infrastructure to connect to. On site package treatment plants are used and where possible gravity is used to channel waste water. However, pumps are required from the historic boathouses at the water’s edge. Also, innovative design solution options were provided to allow the jetty to protrude into shallow water at the bank whilst protecting the lake bed.
• Flood risk assessments & sustainable drainage design.
• Minimised the construction programme to allow for trading to commence.
• Use of best practice to minimise capital cost of construction.
• Ground improvement techniques and innovative foundation solutions to unlock brownfield site.
