Nearing completion, we are currently providing Civil and Structural Engineering design to support local architects Evans & Traves with this high-quality contemporary apartment building taking its lead from the Deco style of buildings that characterise the nearby Branksome Chime Beach. The building comprises ten apartments and a stunning top floor penthouse.
The build had significant engineering challenges, from its deep excavations for the basement car parking requiring contiguous bored piles to the boundaries with the adjacent property, deep lift shaft and central positioning of the tower crane.
Initially designed as full concrete framed structure, our design team responded swiftly when the developer instructed a change of structural solution above ground floor from the concrete frame to a steel framed precast floor solution. A full building model utilising Revit assisted our swift redesign of a transfer to accommodate the change to the upper floors.
