project description:

A project of significant scale occupying almost the full length of Fitzwilliam Street. Comprising two 5/7 storey blocks over triple basement, with an overall floorspace of 42,000 m2 above a semi worked-out quarry. The outcome of an International Design Competition, conceived to complement its Georgian core setting, it features hand laid brick walls as the primary load bearing element along Fitzwilliam Street. Innovative structural details include large Vierendeel trusses offering clear spans up to 15m, slip formed cores, and GGBS to reduce embedded carbon footprint. The project is a worthy winner of a competitive category.
