Description

The primary structure consists of a braced steel frame with a suspended precast concrete ground floor and a composite slab at first floor to satisfy the requirements for disproportionate collapse.

Lightweight roofs were supported with steel purlins and diagonal bracing was used to provide stability.  The new frame was kept independent of the existing building and a specific foundation solution was designed to minimise impact on the existing sub-structure and drainage.
