with Full Size Basement.
Howard Building Contractors (HBC) completed this Blackrock residence in September 2016 after a 12 month build programme. This included the excavation for a full size basement under the footprint of the house that would later be divided into a bedroom, a living room and a plant room for all the mechanical equipment in the house. What is visible above ground looks fantastic but what is hidden below ground is what is most impressive.
With a bedroom, living area, a plant room and a lightwell spanning the length of the house to the front it is a wonderful addition to this beautiful house. This house is a showcase to the tremendous work that was delivered by the Howard Building Team.
This involved temporary sheet piling being installed initially which was supported with hydraulic bracing and strutting as the excavation continued. The excavation reached a depth of 3.7 meters below ground and from here the basement was set-out and constructed from insitu reinforced concrete.
