Project Description

Thomas Consulting’s structural engineers designed the structural steel frame for this challenging building. The structure incorporates Corus Bi-Steel lift shafts, providing lateral stability and enabling rapid construction of lift shafts and stairwells. F-Beam structural steel beams were used to achieve the long clear spans within the limited construction depth.

The building is clad with natural Portland Stone supported by the steel frame. Our structural engineers worked closely with project managers ISG to provide unique design details and ensure the structural steelwork was completed to programme.

Total project value was around £10m.
