Project:Yew Tree Lane


Client:Oastlodge Ltd




Objective:A premium 3 bed house development in Northamptonshire village

The Solution:• AMJ instructed structural engineer for re-design of foundations
• AMJ worked closely with neighbours with effective communication of full programme and all sub-contractors to be deliver over and above “Considerate Contractors Scheme”

Project 2



Project:Oliver House - Northampton


Client:AJ Mackaness Ltd




Objective:An Intermediate Build Contract with Contractors Design to construct an 8-bedroom house of multiple occupation in the centre of Northampton


The Challenge:• Limited site space in central town location
• Very poor ground conditions required redesign of foundations
• Discovery of 6-inch water main running through site - unknown to water authority, client and architect.


The Solution:• AMJ worked closely with the architect and client team creating a bespoke team and a detailed plan encompassing sequencing, communication and close management of all activities on site to ensure a high-quality result.
• AMJ engaged a structural engineer and directed the re-design of foundations to overcome ground conditions for a successful build.
• AMJ liaised with Anglia Water and managed the full decommissioning and removal of the pipe plus remedial groundworks.


"Thank you very much to you and your team for a job well done.  Despite the issues and weather, you managed to complete the building on time and on budget.  I am pleased to tell you that 10 days after you handed the building to us we have started letting it and the first tenants have moved in"
