This project comprised of a new ISIS facility support building split into a handling unit with separate laboratory shell and a test unit.
The building is split via a 10m-high 500mm thick heavily reinforced concrete wall which was constructed in two lifts due to the steel frame sitting on a wall 4.5m high. This meant the second lift on the wall was a challenge as it required formwork to be placed in and around steel stanchions.
All the RC works required large amounts of temporary works as well as crane coordination. There was also significant liaison with the Science Park due to the amount of services infrastructure that had to be bought in from other locations.
