A large common area for a co-working office, which incorporates a restaurant, cafe, bar, glasshouses and public seating areas.
Izzard Design architects required a floating deck 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 thick Vitex hardwood timber decking and 40mm thick structural tiles, which required a level transition between the two surfaces.
The design also included glasshouses, planter boxes and seating areas which needed to integrate with the QwickBuild system and be designed to 5.0kPa UDL and 4.5kN point loadings.
Outdure custom designed the QwickBuild aluminium subframe to accommodate the minimum height available while providing a level transition between the hardwood timber decking and structural tiles, which had different thicknesses.
The site was 3D-scanned with Outdure’s Faro laser scanner to create a Revit point cloud with millions of data points. This provided the Outdure design team with all the heights and dimensions required to design the bespoke subframe solution using a combination of prefabricated and loose supply components.
Outdure designed the Qwickbuild subframe to 5.0kPa UDL and 4.5kN point loadings, with reduced bearer spans and deck jack spacings, and additional support for the planter boxes and seating.
