The project involved the construction of a new sports hall, entrance lobby and classrooms on the site of an existing community hospital, including the removal of several internal load bearing walls.
Eastwood & Partners were appointed to undertake the detailed design of the structural engineering elements, including steelwork, masonry, foundations, below ground drainage and external works.
The existing duopitch tiled roof was supported on steel purlins spanning between load-bearing masonry cross walls. As some of the walls needed to be removed, Eastwood & Partners designed steel beams and posts to support the walls above ceiling level.
