This project consisted of a fully precast 4 storey concrete frame solution.
|ARCHITECT||Fergus Carey and Associates|
|ENGINEER||RPS Consulting Engineers|
|ONSITE DURATION||30 weeks|
Oran Pre-Cast provided a full design and build solution for this mixed use development. The precast products used in the various parts of the structure varied depending on the proposed end use.
The long clear spans in the underground car park and function room were achieved through the use of prestressed hollowcore flooring. Twinwall was used to provide a crosswall solution at the upper bedroom levels. Precast retaining walls were provided to the carpark perimeter.
Points of interest:
Cranked beams to feature stairs
500mm hollowcore for spans of up to 16m
Bespoke 5 sided columns
Exposed concrete finish
20kN/m2 imposed load to ground floor slab
As per most mixed use projects, the changing end uses at the various levels require different structural layouts. This often results in complex transfer structures and bespoke connection details. To aid with the design the project was modelled and detailed using the 3d BIM software, Tekla Structures.
