Bank Plain

We were are please to be involved in the new youth venue at Norwich instructed by John Youngs Ltd, to supply and erect structural steel within the old Barclays Bank building.

Working closely with structural engineers Millard Consulting Norwich and Hudson Architects we have tirelessly surveyed the existing multi storey structure, linking our new steel to the1980’s,1950’s and earlier steel found within the building.

Our brief to provide a steel framed lift shaft constructed within the building, also provide various loose and framed beams, and a mezzanine dance floor platform erected within the existing banking hall, some members of this mezzanine weighed in excess of two tonnes all of which had to be accessed through a double personnel door which created it’s own logistical problems. We erected the mezzanine with a ‘spider’ crane which again had to be fitted through the personnel door.

The roof of the original part of the building required stiffening as a wall was removed below; this was one of the easier parts of the project as we were able to lift the 1tonne beams by crane parked in a very limited access road.
