The project to convert an existing Customs House concrete framed structure built in the 1950s into an open plan Super Bike Showroom for BMW Bowker in Preston started in February 2017.
A challenging Project requiring the removal of all internal load bearing walls to achieve 790 sq.m. of open showroom. New stability frames were designed to be placed externally around the structure to achieve the Client’s requirements. New piled foundations had to be carefully designed to avoid nearby national gas pipelines and large diameter drainage culvert. Our Engineers used the latest computer aided design techniques to overcome Engineering problems during the design stage rather than in construction.
