Occupying a prominent elevated location on the site of the former Mount Wise Admiralty, with beautiful views across the Hamoaze and Plymouth Sound, Leeward House is a prime 7 storey residential development.
Working directly for the client, Airey and Coles provided full civil and structural design services to meet the exacting needs and high specification required. Of particular interest was the location of the adjacent historic Devonport ‘Lines’ and the underlying fissured limestone geology, both of which required a detailed and forensic approach to developing a cost effective and efficient substructure solution.
The superstructure is predominantly cast insitu reinforced concrete, chosen for its fire, sound, durability and robustness properties. All essential for a building of this type in this location.
