Description

A double height portal frame structure provided substantial internal space to suit the requirements of the end user tennants. The large expanses of glazing to the ground floor elevation restricted the use of vertical cross bracing, resulting in the requirement for the portalisation of bays to be incorporated. Careful consideration was given the the design of secondary steelwork to suit the four different types of external cladding materials.

The ground floor construction comprised a suspended precast slab supported off nominally reinforced strip footings, which were stepped across the site to suit the existing topography. The portal columns were supported off pad bases which were reinforced to keep depths of concrete to a minimum.
