Consideration of a sites topography is vital in the development of a site's masterplan to ensure a efficient design solution is achieved.
Consideration of a site’s topography is vital in the development of a site's masterplan to ensure an efficient design solution is achieved.
At Tumu Consulting our engineers assist in the development of site masterplans, providing advice on how level constraints can be addressed to provide an efficient and cost-effective solution, aiding to minimise the need for any retaining walls, steps, under-build, and tanking. Our understanding of Building Regulations and other design standards means you can trust us to deliver the optimum arrangement.
On sites with challenging levels our engineers assist in the development of the masterplan to ensure an efficient layout is developed to achieve a cut/fill balance and reducing any retaining requirements.
Where required we develop 3D models of site layouts, taking into account proposed arisings and required topsoil strips to identify the cut/fill volumes for the site. This can be used to identify if a balance of material can be achieved and where potential level changes may need to be made. Understanding the required levels for a site and potential cut/fill volumes at an early stage helps our clients understand the potential cost implications for their sites.
