BWB were appointed by Land Securities to provide Structural services for the significant modification of an existing Reinforced Concrete framed shopping centre.
The modifications included the amalgamation of several empty retail units to accommodate a new Clas Ohlson store. Several level differences needed to be reconciled to form the single unit which required the infill of two stair wells, modifications to the lift shaft arrangements. New escalators were also introduced into the building which necessitated service diversions and modifications to the existing reinforced concrete structure. Checks were also undertaken on the glazed roof structure to allow for the installation of air conditioning units and lighting rigs.
