Mixed-use

We have gained an enviable reputation in the Mixed-Use sector, for being able to deliver the complex requirements of many successful developments. Many of these projects are residentially led, with a wide range of structural materials considered to achieve large open spaces below the accommodation. We have found that different approaches are appropriate depending on the value and importance of the lower level uses. Often long span transfer structures are adopted though sometimes large spans can be developed at upper floors with the use of alternative construction techniques such as post tensioning.

On a very complex project, such as the Tally Ho development in Finchley, a range of different structural solutions were appropriate. This ambitious development needed to provide residential, retail, leisure and educational uses as well as a bus garage. Amongst the great variety of materials and techniques we used to achieve this projects were big steel plate girders, timber and steel, to name but a few.

We have also been asked to collaborate with developers in this sector to identify a range of structural solutions for mixed-use developments. In one such instance we worked with Tesco to develop their ‘Model Solution Document’ for their future residential led stores. We were able to help them examine preferred apartment layouts, store and car parking layouts, interfaces, servicing and maintenance.
