Light Weight Garden Shed

Garden Shed Design

We just completed the structural design for this light weight shed which will comprise a swimming pool and gymnasia. Although it appears simple, the soils which it is constructed upon where highly shrinkable Clays (which were dried out) . This meant that we actually had to design the foundations to stop the soils pushing the structure upwards as opposed to the structure compressing the soils (ie. pushing them down). So in effect, any ground movement would have caused the structure to move upwards………. a bit like the effects of Pyrite
