LSJ Engineering was commissioned by T&B Contractors to to construct a new build for Capel Manor School in Enfield.
- Client: T&B Contractors
- Structural detail by: Mark Ebbs
- Job Duration: 2016
This was a new build structure of around 40 tonnes, fairly lightweight for a building of this size and only single story, but complicated by having a double pitched roof and being curved on plan.
Our Tekla 3D modelling and drawing software allows us to detail structures such as these with great accuracy. We can order curved sections to be made exactly as required from CNC files, making the fabrication quicker and ensuring the final site erection goes very smoothly.
Accurate setting out and install of the column holding down bolts is critical, especially so with a structure this complex. Again, our drawing software ties this process into the design from the start and we are able to issue very good setting out information to the groundworks contractor.
