Mixed use precast concrete frame for 15,468m² structure.

Architect

Bond Bryan

Client

Volkswagen

The 15,468m2 structure forms the new flagship Volkswagen sales and service centre in the UK. It is a suspended four-storey facility with a service centre at ground floor, showroom at first and second floors, offices, as well as 7300m² of car parking over four suspended levels.

The project was constructed within an 18 week on-site programme, giving a 14 week saving over an in-situ concrete solution. The structure was erected using an LR1130 and an LR1160 crawler crane, part of the crane fleet owned by PCE Ltd.

The use of 3D modelling during the design process assisted in ensuring that the potential clash of structure with M&E services was avoided, as well as helping to determine the accuracy of connections and developing logistics and erection programmes.
