A challenging Structure, considering the strict Design /Architectural brief and tight programme. Using the Strucad system allowed us to not only detail the new Bridge Structure but also the existing concrete interface from survey information.
This ensured a millimetre perfect fit on site installation within the Award winning 02 Building.
Based on this busy street the Structure was split into 2 Phases vertically. The initial brief necessitated the 2nd floor to be detailed as both a floor and roof. Should Planning permission be given during the Construction period the columns were to be extended and the 2ND floor ‘purlins’ and parapet were then to be utilised on the new high level roof freeing up the 2nd floor.
Although the decision to extend was granted after the issue of the 1st Phase and during manufacture we detailed Phase 2 within the model and using the Strucad issuing system provided a seamless transition from a 2nd floor to roof with no site drilling or welded and associated costs.
