The spreading of the loading of the stone rainscreen, Aerolite stone and Aerobrik brick slips, was an important consideration.
The curved colonnade required precision design input. The stone soffit to the curved colonnade required extra fixings and support. There was very limited space between the faceted stone on the columns and the curtain walling.
The COVID-19 crisis was a challenge, for safe working and the impact on the import of internationally sourced materials.
The exact loadings were checked with data from supplier Eurobond. The design of the support work and access structure were engineered accordingly.
The faceted stone required a secondary support structure. Extra measures were taken to protect the curtain wall, when installing the Aerolite stone cladding to the columns.
The RAMS was completely re-written to meet all COVID-19 biosecurity requirements for safe working.
