You are required to generate a multidisciplinary tender document (including the circuit and facilities design and planning) for Grade 2 racing facilities which can host various motorsport activities (except for F1). You need to identify an old/redundant airfield (a bomber site or an alternative very large brownfield), preferably regional (North West) which is large enough and potentially suitable for a Grade 2 Circuit and all the facilities required for such development. You are required to consult relevant documents governing this sport and explore and research similar facilities nationally and internationally to adopt best practice. You will, no doubt, have to give thorough consideration to planning issues, sustainability and social concerns and conditions may need to be assumed in developing a business case for you your proposed development.
Civil Engineering – Foundation Design
1) A preliminary design appraisal with appropriate sketches indicating at least two distinct and viable solutions for the proposed foundations at the site. Indicate clearly the key issues relating to the site and how your preliminary scheme deals with these issues.
2) A report on the preliminary design solution that you recommend, giving reasons for your design choices. This must include an assessment of the sustainability of your design, including carbon costing.
3) Preparation of plans, sections and detail drawings to clearly show the foundation design.
4) Why did I use pile foundation for this site?
