To construct a large public common area for a co-working office building, which incorporates a restaurant, cafe and bar, glasshouses and public seating areas.
Izzard Design architects required a floating deck solution with low height capabilities that was also lightweight and could incorporate multiple decking surfaces on the one subframe system.
The exterior public space incorporated 30mm Vitex hardwood timber decking and 40mm structural tiles, which required a level transition between the two surfaces.
The design also included glasshouse’s, planter boxes, seating and hogging areas which needed to integrate with the QwickBuild system and be designed to 5.0 KPA UDL and 4.5KN Point loadings.
Outdure’s design team custom designed the QwickBuild aluminium sub-frame system to accommodate the minimum height available in areas and provide a level transition between the hardwood timber decking and structural tiles which where different thicknesses.
The site was 3D scanned with Outdure’s Faro laser scanner to create a revit point cloud with millions of data points, to provide the Outdure design team with all the heights and dimensions required to design the bespoke subframe solution which used a combination of prefabricated and loose supply components.
Outdure designed the Qwickbuild subframe system to 5.0 KPA UDL and 4.5KN Point loadings, this required reducing the bearer spans and deck jack spacings and incorporated additional support under for the planter boxes and seating.
