The design and detailing of a bespoke spiral staircase and raised decking area allowed the property owner to create an elevated seating area overlooking the beautiful Cornish countryside.
A historic well in the rear garden of this property in Lower Dicker posed a significant risk to the proposed single-storey rear extension. I surveyed the well and developed a remediation strategy to enable construction.

Cobra Mist, Orford Ness
A structural condition assessment with the aid of rope access surveyors was required on a lattice radar mast. The assessment assisted in the subsequent design for inclusion of a new temporary radio antenna and provided design assurance.
