Chertsey Bridge Wharf

New Picture (24) New Picture (23)

This prestigious development is located on the Thames Embankment, adjacent to Chertsey Bridge. The site was previously occupied by a boat yard, encouraging the architect to embody a nautical theme into the design. Porthole style windows and curved roofs with exaggerated eaves overhangs added to the overall impression of the development.

Balconies are well positioned to take full advantage of the view over the river, and a curved open atrium gives a luxurious entrance to the units. These special features created many challenges to our Engineers and Timber Frame Designers but the results speak for themselves.

Timber frame was particularly suited to this site due its light weight structure which was required due to the difficult ground conditions.

Pinewood Structures’ capacity to undertake a project of this size with such challenging design elements was a major factor in being chosen for the project. Excellent project management and flexibility were key to delivering this project to schedule.

The buildings were technically demanding due to their shape, size and location. Balconies on all of the blocks had to be tied back in to the timber frame to prevent any lateral movement.
