There were a number of complex features involved in this project, from both design and manufacture viewpoints.

 

These included:

  • A perimeter cantilevered wing beam profile

  • Support beams and flooring to the curved inclined ramps

  • Double spanning quarter circle partially cantilevered beams with a sloping boot and

  • A discreet corbel support detail

Our in house design team used the finite element package, SCIA Engineer, for stability and curved beam analysis. The TEKLA drawing package was used to model the curved ramps in 3D.

The core walls were formed using twinwall. The use of 400mm deep prestressed hollowcore allowed for a clearance of approximately 15m between columns.

The structure was designed in accordance with the Eurocodes.
