Carne, Golf Club

This project consisted of a reinforced concrete raft foundation constructed on a compacted hardcore apron. It comprised a partial basement construction with concrete retaining walls to the rear and sides and a reinforced concrete roof supported on a combination of reinforced concrete columns, beams and load bearing blockwork.

The adjacent golf course comes right up and over the sides and rear walls of the extension and across the roof to the open courtyard between the new extension and the existing building.
