Located just 30 miles north of Central London, the new town of Stevenage is an excellent location for those who like to balance the excitement of city living with beautiful English countryside. It is also near to both Luton and Stanstead airports, bringing convenience to every aspect of the residents’ lives.

Design4Structures were tasked with designing and detailing the full structure for several 3 and 4 bedroom homes on Marlborough Road. This included everything from the foundations to the ground floor and superstructure, working alongside a local family builder in the process. Although the project was relatively straightforward, there were some challenges in designing the substructure due to the land’s history. It turned out that the plot where the houses were being built had once been a chalk pit, filled in during the early 1900’s to create a public park.

As this was our first project, we are especially proud of the work we completed for these homes. Marlborough Road also prepared us well for our future projects, teaching us to always expect the unexpected.
