SDS Design Engineers acted as Civil/Structural Engineers on this outstanding Lidl mixed use development in Epsom`s Upper High Street. The development compromises of a 1,427m2 two storey retail store with undercroft parking which was opened in August, 30 residential apartments, six affordable housing units and 112 parking spaces. The actual store site in total occupies an area of approximately 1.2 acres, the whole development is spread over2,44m2.


The Upper High Street site was a brownfield site and has stood empty for years. There is a fantastic `living wall` installed with specially cultivated plants and its own water feed and drainage system, adding some colour and nature to what otherwise would be a very urban environment


Our clients are in public and private sectors, including government bodies, developers, main contractors and owners. Market areas in which we currently work are commercial, residential, industrial, hotel and leisure, education, and water engineering.

SDS design engineers & architects developed a prototype precast concrete store in London. The aim was to reduce the construction time by at least 20% but also to maintain the visual appearance of the store. The SDS team completed the brief successfully.

We analysed numerous foundation solutions for retail stores over the years and found that the SDS designed lean raft foundation for store buildings is the most efficient foundation with respect to cost and materials used.
