RPS successfully delivered this project, on time and within budget using BIM technology.
The two and three storey office has a structural steel frame of two wings around a central glazed feature entrance incorporating the lifts and stairs within a double height entrance atrium.
Our engineers were responsible for the design and specification of materials for the:
Reinforced concrete ground floor slab
Composite concrete/steel upper floors to optimise structural efficiency and reduce structural floor depth, thereby allowing additional insulation placed beneath to enhance the unit’s thermal performance
Drainage for the unit
Reconfiguration of the car parks.
This building was designed to realise a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’, however, through careful design and attention to detail actually realised an ‘Excellent’ rating upon completion.
The client also stipulated that the existing buildings had to remain operational throughout the design and construction period which resulted in a carefully phased operation on site.
