This project involved the design of a bespoke 3-storey office block over basement on brownfield site.

As part of the Civil Structural Service we designed a framing structure in exposed reinforced concrete comprising floors columns and beams supporting a precast concrete roof supporting plant and equipment. A system of curtain walling glazing is supported via a tapering cantilevered reinforced slab along the front façade.

The Mechanical/Electrical services installed in this project include heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, water services, B.M.S controls, general power, lighting, fire alarm, security and a lift shaft.
