Description

The construction consisted of a 5 storey structural steel frame, with precast units being utilised for the upper floors. A transfer structure was utilised at first floor level to accommodate an open plan restaurant and reception at ground floor. Built next to the Grade II listed ‘Queens Arms’ public house, this adjacent structure required extensive temporary propping to allow the new construction to take place. The substructures involved deep bored piles and cantilever beams to facilitate the listed building next door and the public highway immediately bounding the site.
