This project in Shankill, Dublin entailed a rear extension of the existing dwelling by removing an existing conservatory and constructing a new support structure to create an open dining and living area.
A challenge on this project was the existing party wall between the adjacent properties. The party wall was required to support the proposed roof of the extension and therefore permissions and party wall agreement were required from the adjacent property owner.
Our calculation showed that the existing wall did not have sufficient capacity to support the roof of the extension and considering the possible future extension of the adjacent property. The existing wall was subsequently demolished and rebuilt to facilitate the proposed scheme.
