This project presented a number of challenges for the team. As with any refurbishment project we worked hard to discover how the existing building was working before we presented solutions to modify it. Along with the existing building investigations, we completed a comprehensive site investigation to assess the ground conditions on this sloped site. Both the building and site revealed a number of surprises once analysed fully which went on to heavily influence the final solutions.
We worked to produce a number of schemes at an early stage and illustrated these in sketch form to discuss with the Client. This allowed both the Client and the Architect to be fully engaged in the structural process and to provide a well coordinated and coherent scheme.
