Routeco, Milton Keynes
RPS provided Civil and Structural Engineering designs for an office space of three buildings totalling 42,800ft2.
To maintain consistency, the facility was constructed in similar materials to existing units on the park whilst maintaining its own identity.
The client also stipulated that the existing buildings had to remain operational throughout the design and construction period which resulted in a carefully phased operation on site.
Two and three storey offices have a structural steel frame of two wings around a central glazed feature entrance incorporating the lifts and stairs within a double height entrance atrium.
Our engineers were responsible for the design and specification of materials for the:
Reinforced concrete ground floor slab
Composite concrete/steel upper floors to optimise structural efficiency and reduce structural floor depth
Drainage for the unit
Reconfiguration of the car parks.
Our teams successfully delivered this project on time and to budget using BIM technology. The building achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.
