Structural Survey and Design for Hesketh Heapstead and Boiler House
The former Chatterley Whitfield colliery site is situated on the edge of the Stoke-on-Trent conurbation in North Staffordshire. It was scheduled by English Heritage as an ancient monument in 1993. This brought the site national profile and prominence, and led directly to the establishment of the Chatterley Whitfield Partnership to drive forward regeneration and redevelopment of the site. The momentum generated culminated with the inclusion in the Government’s National Coalfields Programme in the Autumn of 2002.
The 11Ha coal mining building complex is a designated scheduled ancient monument (SAM) and is planned to be redeveloped by Stoke-on-Trent City Council in line with the heritage constrictions.
As part of the redevelopment the City Council requires a structural survey to be carried out to two of the buildings in the SAM site, namely Building 6 - Hesketh Heapstead and Building 16 - Main Boiler.
Required services include:
- a) Current condition.
c) Optional solutions
a. Full Repair Building 16
b. Full repair Building 16. (Rear Wall Zone only)
c. Main Structural Frame (Rear wall zone only) to include wall demolition
c) Cost Estimate including repair/demolition costs, and future maintenance costs for each option
The works are intended to be awarded using NEC3 Professional Services Contract.
