T&B Contractors contracted LSJ Engineering to supply and fit a structural steel mezzanine floor to a shopping unit in Atria Shopping Centre, Watford, Hertfordshire. The steel beams total 89 tonnes, and we began work in July 2023.
The structural steel beams were delivered to the basement service area, then hoisted two floors up to the work area via a scaffold lifting gantry. The existing columns, some of which are nearly 5 inches thick, were drilled on-site to accept the new beams. The beams were erected with Genie lifting hoists.
You can click on the images below to see the works in progress, from the 3D model to the finished structural steel mezzanine floor:
Once the steelwork is complete, the beams will be intumescent painted. Then a concrete deck will be poured on, in order to form the new floor. Finally, we will form new openings in the existing steel structure below to allow installation of new lifts and escalators. Building Design Consultants of Billericay designed the structural connections for the new beams for us.
We’re pleased with how this project is unfolding! What do you think of it?
