This new build house is being designed with Ström Architects and site works will begin early 2020 with completion due later this year.
Jensen Hunt are providing structural and civil engineering design services. The property has been fully 3D modelled using Revit to ensure a high level of co-ordination. The design uses a combination of steel framing and loadbearing cavity walls with bespoke format bricks to the external facade.
JHD collaborated to deliver an immersive art installation in a Grade II listed building.The installation ran for 4 days as part of London Fashion Week 2019.
We undertook a detailed survey and appraisal of the existing structure, setting out design loading parameters that informed the configuration of the final artwork.
It took an onsite team of 56 people, 3000m of rope, 11,000m2of blue netting and a 6 day build to form ‘The Tube’ that visitors climbed through.

This project involved the refurbishment of an under utilised existing brick arch basement adjacent to London Bridge and the River Thames and the replacement of double height window panels on the front retained facade.
As the existing building has historical value and is listed Jensen Hunt have worked closely with the preservation specialists to maintain the historic character and materials.

Located in the City of London near St Paul’s Cathedral, this existing multi-use ten storey building provides retail accommodation at ground floor and offices above.
The refurbishment will maximise the net internal office space and floor to ceiling heights resulting in over 69,700 sq.ft.
The residential scheme will boast an internal area of over 7,000 sq ft, have an indoor swimming pool and sophisticated architectural detailing.
By utilising 3D modelling we were able to plot the varying ground conditions and existing utility locations against the existing and proposed level changes to maximise the foundation design and reduce the cost.
The existing terrace property was in a poor condition with extensive historical damage throughout. Jensen Hunt undertook and extension survey and prepared a remedial repair programme to bring the property back to a good structural condition. There was then a extension refurbishment of the internal spaces, roof conversion and rear extension.

Featured in the 'Dont Move Improve' Exhibition 2019. This domestic project featured a fantastic large ground floor extension. Utilising a steel box frame design the entire rear facade was supported with a seamless ceiling line.
A new skylight strip between the extension and main house helped to bring light into the centre of the extension, structurally this meant the extension had to maintain stability independently of the main house.

This project located in West Dulwich was the original show home when the street was developed in the late 1800s. The existing layout was modified internally with ground floor areas increasing with a large rear single storey extension and an addition first floor extension.
Steel sizes were kept to a minimum any utilising masonry piers where possible whilst maintaining large new openings to the rear. The structure was designed to minimise the impact on to the existing party walls to reduce disruption to the neighbours and mitigate delays from the party wall process.
This East Dulwich project involved increasing the cramped ground floor area by introducing a glazed side extension and converting the loft to create an extra bedroom.
Discreet steel columns were used within the extension external wall to provide support to the glazing elements and maintain a free glazed opening to the rear. The extra storey and loft conversion were constructed from lightweight materials to minimise the extra loads onto the existing foundations and avoid the need for costly foundation strengthening.
The building has been renovated to provide a gastro pub at ground floor and basement with hotel accommodation to the upper floors. All floors were refurbished to suit its revised use and the layout amended to incorporate a new full height staircase.
JHD’s work included the justification of the existing structure to support an additional storey of hotel accommodation and a new roof terrace. The 4th floor was designed as a ‘crash deck’ to satisfy disproportionate collapse requirements in accordance with Building Regulations.

Located in a prominent Chelsea street this existing four storey townhouse was fully reconfigured and refurbished with a basement extension to create a luxury home.
Sensitive party wall issues were a prominent consideration for this project, Jensen Hunt took a central role to resolve and conclude the negotiations with a positive outcome for all.

A stunning duplex penthouse apartment built over two occupied flats and a commercial ground floor and basement unit.
Investigations were undertaken to establish existing load paths and existing victorian steelwork justified for the increased loads for the additional floor being added.
A light but complex steel steel frame was utilised to maximise the large open spaces.
A new HQ for Candy Capital. A Grade II listed townhouse in Mayfair completely refurbished and a double height rear extension.
Jensen Hunt fully researched the existing building to mitigate risks during the construction, this helped to eliminate unforeseen issues.
The double storey extension to the rear was carefully designed to minimise potential risks related to the party wall.

A recently constructed residential property in Highgate, North London.
Lightweight timber panels were designed by Jensen Hunt and pre-fabricated off site and lifted into position by mobile crane. Project site time was limited to two days.
Due to the nature of pre-fabrication and installation the client experienced minimal disruption and could use almost the whole building during installation.
Two penthouse apartments completely refurbished and extended into the roof voids.
Utilising timber diaphragm floor design and considered modeling of the new timber roof frames we were able to minimise structural zones whilst maintaining acceptable levels of deflection throughout. This approach maximised living space for the client and created incredible apartments.
This new build brings together great contemporary design to create a fantastic family home which was nominated for the Daily Telegraph's Homebuilding & Renovating Awards.
Jensen Hunt Design were appointed to oversee and design the structural elements of this eco home which achieved level 4 of the 'Code for Sustainable Homes'. The frame is formed from a SIPs (structural insulated panel) system which is both sustainable and quick form of construction.

An Old Victorian Pump House, Grade II listed building, built in 1850 beautifully restored and extended for use as studio space for an architectural practise.
Many of the old timber beams supporting the floor and original pump wheels were rotten beyond repair and new flitch plate connections were designed to restore bearings allowing original timbers to be saved.

This river side property, a moments walk away from Hampton Court Palace was completely refurbished and extended.
Being so close to the River Thames the ground conditions meant that a mini piled foundation solution was most efficient which also negated risks associated with the party wall process.
The existing property was modelled in 3D to help co-ordinate the varying levels across the site and property.
