Oran Pre-Cast relied on years of experience in the mixed use sector to deliver one of our most complex projects to date. The floor layout and building geometry varied greatly between the 7 levels, leading to a large number of bespoke elements and some significant transfer structures.

Our in house design team created a detailed 3-dimensional model to aid the design process. The model was invaluable when it came to designing and detailing the more complex elements and connections. The Tekla software package automatically generated production drawings of the various elements which greatly sped up the detailing process.

 

Key design features included:

  • 2no. 40 tonne transfer beams

  • Cantilevering lattice floor design

  • Bespoke downstand and cantilevering edge beams

  • Allowance for future vertical expansion

  • Exposed circular columns
