Sir Christopher Cockerell Centre, East Coast College
The new teaching block for East Coast College is not only the first phase of a major redevelopment of the college, but is also the eye-catching flagship building of the college site.
The amalgam of steelwork and concrete construction has created a stunning overall visual effect which is a major enhancement to the college and the area as a whole.
Canham Consulting was appointed as civil, structural and drainage engineers to produce detailed drawings and specifications for the client. The structural designs were not only required to provide the necessary strength to the building but were, in many cases, an integral part of the overall aesthetics of this project.
Such sensitive designs required a very close collaboration by Canham Consulting with the architect and contractor, and the resulting construction achieved the desired results for our client.
Tekla 3D modelling was an integral part of this contract and this allowed all possible solutions to be viewed by our client before committing to the final design.
