We have worked on several international projects, principally with UK based Clients or Architects. This project for a new main feature to the Coachella Music Festival was particularly challenging as the structure was to be designed and fabricated in the UL and then shipped to the USA to be erected on site two weeks before […]
DP Squared partnered with Architect Gagarin Studio to deliver this 50m span bridge over the River Aire which links two new developments and provides pedestrian access to the tow path along the river. The challenge was to connect two quite different site levels while still providing clear headroom over the river to deal with projected […]
The Mustard Tree Charity is based in an old warehouse building on Oldham Road. The project was to refurbish this building and provide better access and facilities throughout the building.

The proposal was to infill the atriums at each floor and create a new single storey extension at roof level. We were fortunate to have a full set of structural drawings available for the […]

A raft foundation and three basement levels were excavated through the Sandstone within a bored pile wall perimeter. Large props […]
