The re-development of an existing Edwardian office building with a new two-storey RC extension and extensive internal alterations including a new a re-configured central core to deliver a new lab enabled workspace.
- Key Features:
- Re-coring and extension of an iconic, early 1900’s office building.
- Roof extension constructed using reinforced concrete to maximise flexibility and reduce embodied carbon of the new construction.
- New piled raft foundation utilised to support the new extension loads while maintaining the existing foundations and structure.
- Structure designed to be ‘lab enabled’ with minimal adaption works required by the tenant to allow use as a wet lab.
- • Lab spaces designed to limit resonant response factor to less than 1 for 65% of the floorplate.
- • Retained steel frame structure to the lower floors to minimise embodied carbon and maximise reuse.
- • Exposed concrete finishes to the new RC structure, with columns and beams strengthened to accommodate an increased imposed load and vertical extension.
