Description

The BREEAM Excellent building comprises a three storey structural steel frame, utilising composite concrete suspended floor slab construction, together with traditional shallow reinforced concrete foundation pads on vibro treated formation.

Detailed co-ordination of the structural steel frame and M&E services was achieved with the use of 3D structural modelling design and detailing software, incorporating clash detection techniques.

As part of the scheme a new adoptable highway and traffic island was constructed and utilised tank sewer surface water attenuation beneath the main carriageway.
