Structural Engineering Calculations Pertaining To Party Wall Matters

Date: Nov 2012

Job No: 1157

Checked by: SA


These calculations justify the proposed alterations to the existing period terraced property at the above

The existing building comprises lower-ground, ground, first, second & third floors, constructed form
load bearing solid masonry walls with traditional timber floors & roof construction.

The new proposals comprise of a new basement constructed using reinforced concrete underpins in
bay sequence to the full length of the property’s party walls and front wall, and a piled retaining wall to
the width of the property to the front boundary, a double level basement area to the rear garden will be
constructed by use of a contiguous pile wall, the loads from the rear elevation of the main house will be
diverted and carried by a double level steel box frame that will bear onto the new underpin walls in the
permanent condition.

Lateral stability is achieved by diaphragm action in the upper timber floors and lower RC floors
transferring horizontal forces into in-plane shear in the masonry party walls and transverse RC
underpin and pile walls. These forces are in-turn transferred to RC wall base footings and resisted by
friction and passive resistance at the interface to the firm clay soil onto which the building is founded.
