Structural Design Calculations by Mason Clark Associates, included verifying the proposed structural layout of the building and provide initial comments and recommendations where structural elements were deemed to be required. This was carried out prior to undertaking detailed structural design.

One of our challenges was that the project was non-site specific and was constructed at different locations in the country. We had to base our calculations on worst possible case for wind and snow loads within England and the foundations were designed with the ground assumed to be suitable for shallow strip foundations and with an assumed ground bearing capacity.

MCA carried out Structural design calculations for Building Regulation Approval for the following:-

  • Design of internal steelwork to support the floor structure and provide lateral stability to allow moveable internal partitions
  • Recheck eaves glulam beam for alternative spans
  • Recking resistance/stability checks on steelwork and panels
  • Foundation checks for the new steel column reactions Design of major steelwork/glulam/timber connections.
  • Design of major steelwork/glulam/timber connections.
