The proposed development at 4-6 St Edmunds Terrace comprises of an eight storey reinforced concrete frame construction including a lower ground floor and two-storey basement.
The lower ground floor slab will act as a podium/transfer slab which will support the superstructure columns. This is to create the required column-less space in the upper basement level.
A five-storey reinforced concrete frame is proposed above the lower ground floor. All floors comprise of 200mm thick flat slabs with 300mm circular and/or square reinforced concrete columns which support the slabs and a central 250mm thick shear core providing the overall lateral stability.
The main architectural features of the building that affect the structural strategy are:
