The project was designed by Mythen Construction Limited who commissioned specialist Architects and Engineers to develop the original conceptual design to a level whereby the building would be constructed to meet both statutory, regulatory and client specific demands. The building was designed to achieve high quality U-Values to major elements such as windows, floors, external walls and roof thus ensuring compliance with the client’s demands. The substructure of the build comprised a structural steel frame supported on In-situ concrete bearing pads. Factory Pre-formed insulated timber floor cassette panels were connected to the structural steel frame. The main frame of the building arrived pre-assembled to site ensuring a rapid erection period with complete weathering of the building completed in a mere four weeks. An insulated prefabricated roof panel was covered on site with single ply-roofing membrane with Upvc perimeter guttering. The outer skin of the external wall perimeter was cladded with a single skin 0.5mm metal press profiled panel sheeting.
