DBFL provided civil and structural engineering services for the landmark 10,000 sqm commercial development of Q House on Furze Road in Sandyford Industrial Estate.
This reinforced concrete framed office development comprises 25 own-door office suites in two separate 6-storey blocks over basement with connecting pedestrian link bridges at each level between blocks.
Of particular note is the design of steelwork supports for the full height vertical glazing to the atrium and the architectural steelwork to courtyard walkways.
Structural steelwork bridges spanning 13m link the two blocks at each level. The bridges at the lower level were designed to be demountable in order to provide access to a main sewer in the way leave between both blocks.
