JNP Group carried out the full structural, infrastructure and Planning Supervisor services for this successful development, comprising of piled foundations and a reinforced concrete transfer slab over undercroft car parking, supporting a proprietary ‘Fusion’ cold rolled steel superstructure.
After detailed consultation with the Client, JNP Group consulting engineers designed an reinforced concrete flat slab podium at first floor level. This allowed complete flexibility of load-bearing locations to the Fusion system suppliers and enabled JNP Group to comply with the stringent deflection criteria specified by Fusion, to prevent buckling failure of the cold rolled framing.
JNP Group consulting engineers were also heavily involved with the onsite remediation of this disused town gas works, including bridging of the substantial deep gas holder bases which remain buried.
JNP Group services provided:
- Site remediaton strategy.
- Structural design.
- Planning supervisior.
- Drainage design.
- Foundation design to bridge buried gas holders.
