This was the construction of a double depth basement including a swimming pool at a private residence in Holland Park. The works were underneath the existing footprint of the house and extended into the rear garden. Due to the logistics on this particular site we undertook the works by “top down” construction i.e. we constructed the lower ground floor first to lend greater stability and effectively “tunnelled” underneath it for construction of the basement level.
