This project consisted of a fully precast 2 storey concrete frame solution. The beam and column frame was designed to cater for a future 2 storey vertical extension.

|ONSITE DURATION||11 weeks|
There were a number of complex features involved in this project, from both design and manufacture viewpoints.
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.
