SWJ Consulting are experienced in developer led new housing developments. Providing consultancy services to several highly respected developers for large residential sites

Our success with developer led housing stems from our understanding of the processes, restrictions and priorities of developers, and the pressures they are under from their clients

We are commonly engaged in large housing developments, to offer second opinions or provide our expertise where there are challenging site levels, gradients, drainage or foundation issues.

All our team is experienced in multiple forms of building construction techniques from traditional to modern construction methods such as timber frame housing and with our technology we are able to provide clients with a range of options that can include off-site prefabrication.

30% of the cost of any project is in the ground and foundation design has a significant impact on the commercial value of a residential scheme

Our collaborative approach to working closely with geotechnical and civil engineers enables us to provide and implement the best foundation solution for each project be it ground bearing strip footings, concrete pads, vibro-compaction, rafts or piling.

We are able to provide an economic principle of design where there are standard housing types and have detailed knowledge of the NHBC and Premier Guarantee Regulations.

Proven Track Record

We have proven ourselves in saving clients time and money by providing economic and well considered foundation solutions; in particular, our local knowledge of Oxfordshire has led us to challenge site investigations where we considered their findings contrary with our local knowledge and were proved correct. It is this practical approach combined with the virtual design technology we use that enables us to deliver large projects efficiency and add value to the ground with the correct foundation solutions based on our investigations.
