A renovation of an existing office building underneath the A40 Westway road next to Ladbroke Grove Station. The redevelopment will create a retail unit at ground floor level on the high street and a school at first floor level. The works include installation of new curtain walling, alterations to provide more space and light from the glazed elevations and making the existing structural elements safe.
Lyons O’Neill were appointed to provide a design up to tender stage and have since acted as a checking engineer to ensure the final design is satisfactory to our client. Prior to the change of use design, LON performed a detailed assessment of the existing structure which included concrete scanning and intrusive geotechnical investigations as well as calculations and 3D modelling to gain a sound understanding of the existing building.
At the time of writing, the existing cladding has been removed with new steelwork for the portalised frames and ceiling supports are being installed and mullions for the curtain walls are being fixed.
